This is an easier way to make a tie. 
Is pretty simple and fast to do and is a perfect and personalized gift for father day.

I made it recycling an old shirt. (Yes, I could't find an uglier one!)

Step 2: CUT THE MAIN PATTERN

Draw and cut the main pattern.

If you don't have a long piece of fabric like I didn't, you can cut the pattern in half, on a 45º angle.

Use the measure in my picture or use an old tie like a template.

You can decide yourself how acute should be the angles of the two tips (the ones I did are just few degree more obtuse than a  right-angle).

Step 3: CUT THE MAIN SHAPE

With the chalk draw the 2 shape you just did on the shirt and cut them.

Step 4: CUT TWO TIPS ON THE COTTON FABRIC

Using the two tips of the previous patterns you made like a template, draw and cut the two tips on the cotton fabric.

❗ I FORGET TO MAKE THE PHOTO TO THE CUT FABRIC

Step 6: SEW TOGETHER THE SHAPES

Sew together the two tie shapes and the two lining shapes, in a 90º angle.
Now you have the whole tie and the whole lining.
Iron flat the seams.

Step 7: SEW THE TIPS

Pin and sew together the tips of the cotton fabric with the tie tips, both inside out.
Then turn right face out.

Step 8: PLACE THE LINEN

Place the linen in the middle of the tie, with the two tips against the top and bottom ends of the tie.

Step 9: IRON ONE SIDE

Make a little fold on the whole edge of the tie and iron it, than fold to the centerline and iron it in place.

Step 10: IRON THE OTHER SIDE

Do the same things on the other side, overlap slightly the other part.

Pin it in place.
