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 1: WHAT YOU NEED
-old shirt (made of a silk like fabric);
-thin wool linen;
-sheet of squared paper;
Step 2: 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
Step 4: CUT TWO TIPS ON THE COTTON FABRIC
❗❗❗ I FORGET TO MAKE THE PHOTO TO THE CUT FABRIC❗❗❗
Step 5: CUT THE LINING
If your fabric is long enough you can cut it in a whole piece, if it is short in two pieces (divid it with a 45º angle).
Step 6: SEW TOGETHER THE SHAPES
Now you have the whole tie and the whole lining.
Iron flat the seams.
Step 7: SEW THE TIPS
Then turn right face out.
Step 8: PLACE THE LINEN
Step 9: IRON ONE SIDE
Step 10: IRON THE OTHER SIDE
Pin it in place.
Step 11: SEW IT
Sew through the linen, but not the front part of the tie
Step 12: MAKE THE KEEPER
Sew it in the bottom part of the tie like in the photo.
Step 13: DONE
Present it to your father and hope is going to wear it!
