If you're wondering about the long hair....he's going for the world record :/
hot glue gun and glue sticks
(optional) fusible bonding web
I only used hot glue for this project because the material was thicker. Test material before to make sure hot glue does not show through. If it does, I recommend Stitch Witchery to bond tie for a no sew project.
|Traced a tie (mens) and flipped it on either side and traced for the material to fold|
Trimmed material and used the iron to press edges for easier folding
Glue edges to make for a finished look
Measure neck length and trace width
Making the tie knot
Cut off excess and tuck top edges
hot glue all edges
Fold tie over neck strap then bend bottom of tie to fit in the knot. Slide knot to the top.
For the kids I downsized the pattern onto a piece of paper and tested size for each child or if you have a child size tie you can trace instead.
attach velcro tabs
I needed a yellow belt FAST! I normally would spray paint for super fast but my son loves his red belt. I used craft paint for easy removal after the photoshoot and tape to cover hardware while painting. For the gray belt I flipped his busy blue-eyed monster belt over and forced the pin to the other side just for pictures. :)
