.:Tutorial Tuesday - Tie Belt:.

This is a super easy and inexpensive thing to make! It would make a great gift!

Here's what you need:

- 2 ties (I got mine at the D.I.)
- sewing machine/accessories


Start off by laying out your ties how you want them to be sewn.


Pin them in place.


Start sewing around the edges. You may want to map this out before you begin, so that your sewing goes full circle in your pattern each time! Here's what my first time around looked like.



Continue sewing around, using your first stitch line as the marker for your presser foot. Do the same pattern you did the first time. Here's what it looked like two times around.


And here's what it looked like done!


I'm not going to lie; it got a little tricky to follow my lines in the pattern. Kind of confusing! But I think it is super fun! I also made one with one solid tie and one patterned tie. You could do lots of fun things with this!


I don't have a picture of me or someone wearing one, but I imagine you all can figure out that you wrap it around your waist and tie it how you like! Blogger fail, I know - just imagine it...or better yet, go make one and try it out!

  5. I had a roommate in college who would beg all the guys for some of their ties and her waist was so tiny that she could use one tie as a belt.

    I had always wished I could be as outgoing and unique as her :)

    That turned out super cute and looks way fun to wear!
