The majority of schools across Britain require that you wear a tie as part of your uniform. It is the governments idea that if everyone in school dressed the same looking like robots, then bulling wouldn't occur because poorer children won't be picked on for looking different. This is of course a load of rubbish, so why not make a statement and customize your uniform.
Skinny ties are very popular at the moment and are fairly easy to make providing you have some idea of how to sew or stitch.
Step 1: Items needed
-a de-stitching tool (if you dont have one just use a needle or something)
-a pair of scissors
-a needle and some thread or a sewing machine (I didn't use a sewing machine but if you want your tie to last a while I would strongly recommend that you use one)
-an iron and ironing board (not neccessery but still useful)
-pins (not neccessery but still useful)
