Yay……I have finally finished the little guy tie pattern.

Sorry for the delay. It just takes a bit of time to translate everything I do, into written instructions.

But it’s done.

And I have a feeling you’re going to just love this.

And yeah, not only because each little boy needs a tie…..but because he needs 5 or 6.
All made by you.

(which is possible at the price it will cost you to make them yourself.)

This handsome little boy tie is the perfect little addition to spruce up any outfit. With this pattern you’ll be able to make many sizes, use any fabric, and match a variety of outfits. The adjustable neck is great for boys of all sizes and can be worn under a collar or has a finished look that can be worn exposed. It doesn’t matter the time of year, your little guy will look his best for any occasion in his new tie.

The pattern includes directions for children’s sizes 0-6 months through 3T. (7.5, 9, 10.5, and 12 inch ties.)

The pattern is best for beginner/intermediate sewers. However, I have included almost 40 pages of very detailed pictures/instructions for even the most beginner sewers to give a try.

Hey, why not? It’s a project that’s worth making….many times.

Just look at that tie wrapped around that chunky little neck and covering up that sweet pudgy belly. I just want to squeeze my little guy to bits every time he wears his little ties.
Such a handsome little fella.

Buy the pattern in my etsy shop here.

I’m still working on the bootie pattern.
It will be another week or two before it’s done.

    Could you email me the pattern rather than send it through the mail. I need it by this Friday, July 29th.

    1. Ashley says:

      Hi Heidi,

      This pattern is available for purchase in my shop here:

      It isn’t something that I send in the mail……it is a PDF file that I send to your email within 48 hours of payment being received.

      Hope that helps!

I’ve been searching around… you have a pattern for a mans tie too?? years ago i made matching ties for my hubby and infant son for fathers day BUT LOST the pattern…..all patterns i have found are CONFUSING and everything you are teaching is VERY nicely explained!! I LOVE IT ALL!! You have sparked a dormant crafty bug (its hiding because i had an AWFUL 1st trimester!!) in me!! I cannot wait to raid the fabric store!! THANKS!

  5. Emily says:

    I cannot wait to make some of these! Thanks.

    ooh, and I am biting my nails for that bootie pattern too!!

  6. Ashley says:

    Bemis family, go check again when you have a second. I added lots more about an hour ago! :)

  7. The Bemis Family says:

    I can't seem to find the pattern either, but love it and was excited to purchase it… any chance of getting one?

  8. Ashley says:

    Once again, sorry about that. There are more up again.

  9. Bry and Rach says:

    I went to buy the pattern and it wasn't there…sold out maybe? Could you maybe add some more listing pretty please?????

  10. cynthi says:

    Thank You! i've been waiting for this!

  11. Holly says:

    I went to the shop also and couldn't find the pattern. :( Are you going to be adding more soon?

  12. Ashley says:

    So SORRY!!! Yes, there's more in the shop now. The response has been incredible! Thanks to you all!! :)

    Heidi… lengthen the ties wouldn't be too tricky, but there isn't instruction on how to do so. You could definitely make the rest of the tie (the neck piece and the knot) the same way but just lengthen the end of the tie. It really wouldn't be that tricky. But it's up to you!! :)

  13. sue says:

    Went to buy one and couldn't find it. Are you going to add more? PLEASE

  14. Jennifer says:

    Went to get mine and there were no more. =( Hope to get it soon! =)

  20. Heidi and Rich says:

    I want to buy the pattern but my boys are 4 and 5. I am not that bright – can I adjust it to fit them or will it be too confusing. Thanks – Heidi

  21. Sarah says:
