This is super clever! Do you recommend a clip or elastic for the child to wear this?

This is a great idea, and I need to make a couple of these! :)

Hey sorry I missed that step! Haha I put a 14" elastic band that I sewed the ends together, I actually slip the tie through the elastic(with the ends sewn together) when I Flip the tie and putting it through the knot portion, and technically you could use the same elastic and swap out the ties! Or sew a strip of fabric sized to your sons neck, right sides together flip and add Velcro, I used the elastic a lot easier and you don't see it if it's under a collar so no difference and half the time!
