Picture of Stormtrooper Tie

This tie only cost a dollar.  Amazing, huh?  :)  I just picked out a tie that would contrast with a Stormtrooper, bought it from the dollar store, took it home and personalized it!

You will need to get the idea of this project by reading the first few steps on my Machine Embroidery Instructable.  Once you get the idea of that , this is EASY.  Well, either way, it's easy.

Imagine doing this for a wedding?  Groomsmen gifts?  Christmas presents?  It's a nifty-geeky way to gift on a budget.  

Tools of the trade:  Image, sewing machine, darning foot, super solvy and a tie!

Step 1: Tools

"It 'gives the wrong image to the clients'". If that image is of an awesome workplace full of cool employees...

Very cool.
Great gift, well executed and well documented in your Ible.

And I think it's your husbands boss that is giving the wrong image ;-)
I just love the little ships in the background very creative your husband must be going syco over it! i would!

This is so fun! What a great idea instead of just a boring old "dad tie"! Must buy a darning foot immediately! Thanks for sharing! :)
