Winner's Tutorial: Shannon's Easy Bias Tie


Today we have our Polka Dots and Stripes winner, Shannon, sharing her Boy's Easy Bias Tie with us and even the free downloadable pattern.  Thanks so much Shannon!



Hi Project Run & Play family!

Today I'm sharing the Boy's Easy Bias Tie pattern as a free download.

I love ties on little boys. I looked for tie tutorials but only found ones that required a lot of steps, extra pattern pieces, or were just too complicated (says the mom with brain overload!). After inspecting a couple of my husband's ties, I knew that a one-piece tie cut on the bias would come pretty close. This is a super quick and easy sew. I've included a picture summary below of the steps. You can download the free pattern on my site which includes more detailed information.

Thank you! (Please let me know if you have any questions.)





















That's it! Quick and easy. Don't forget to download the free pattern and extra instructions.

Keep doin' what you love!

  1. Seriously easy! Love it. I looked for tie tutorials too and gave up! So great because I can never find boys ties in patterns or designs that I like! Excellent job!

  6. That is impressively simple. =) If my husband wore ties, or if I had any little boys, I'd be making one right now. Maybe I'll wait until one of my brothers wants one. =)
