Makin' a Tie!

I'm really really really REALLY distracted right now, so this will be fascinating!

But anyway, this afternoon I didn't know what to do so I decided to try and make a tie for the dolls! Yup. A tie. AND HERE'S WHY:
  1. I mean, how many times are you dressing your doll and think "Hey, I wish I had a tie!"? Well that happens to me more frequently than I would like to admit!
  2. I've had ribbon for at least a year that's red and blue to make Warbler ties for Daphne. Haven't even started yet.
  3. I need some pretty ties with awesomely matching bright colored collared shirts for this doll I want to make... but I probably won't... but it would be totally awesome. \o/ ;)
So here is my final result:

Close up on the knot thing! :D
I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out, of course everything is still attached by tape until I have more time to try and figure out how I can make this with hot glue instead. Once I do I will most definitely post a tutorial on YouTube! :D And then I'll figure out how to make a bow tie and make red and blue bow ties... and so the cycle continues!
Well, hope you enjoyed! Hmm.. I really need to post the second episode of Mr. Cloud.
I'll keep you updated on my tie progress. ;)



  1. If you slip tie the ribbon/fabric through a matching colored ponytail holder, it works really well, looks like a tie, and is easy to put on! :)

  2. Wow! I thought of making a doll tie today then I came across this! I can't wait to see the tutorial!

  3. *O* I've seen your awesome ties before, but that's really cool! Hey, if you want, I could probably sew you some ties! :D You know, since I dwell(XD) near your house. (WOW I sound like a creeper! Fail)
