more last-minute ideas

this afternoon i whipped up a few ties for our little guy, the idea being that he could wear one ironically at christmas dinner. recently i'd downloaded a copy of this cute leila & ben pdf pattern (via magpie patterns, but they also have an etsy shop). it includes sizes from 1 - 5 years and was only $4! i printed it off, gathered a few japanese linen/cotton scraps and got to work. each tie took about 10 minutes max, including cutting & ironing. so fast!

it could not be easier - raw edges, elastic tucked in, topstitch around and you're done! i also created my own variation (elephant print, in front) with finished edges. i'm going to have to make these for all the little guys i know - so cute!

Awesome! They look so easy, I'm going to have to borrow that pattern some time. My little nephew would look so cute in one of these.

How fun is that?! I think I'd be able to draw out my own pattern for something like that. So cute!
