I saw something similar on Pinterest and had to give it a try! The tie is from my father - with allowance! ;)
Here's how I did it:
|Cut off the end of an old tie. Important: Cut off a larger piece than me, I had to lengthen mine later on.|
|Open the tie at one end and fold in the lining, pinning it|
|At next, sew the lining on the fabric|
Then seam the outer fabric so it looks cleaner.
Pin everything together.
|Handsew the layers on the lower fabric|
|In case there is one, remove the stitch that holds those sides together|
Pin the sides together.
That was the moment I added another piece of tie because I realized mine was too short.
Fold the tie like this.
Pin & sew
Add snap buttons.
