Shabby Tie Onesie Tutorial

For some reason, it's so much harder to think of crafts to make for little boys. Here's a great one that's simple, quick, and SOO adorable!

You will need:

-fabric to make your tie    (Fabric Squares $1 @ Walmart)
-Onesie or t-shirt    $3.99/5 pack
-Sewing Machine

1. You can either draw your own pattern or use the one I made and stretch it to make it as big or little as you want.

2. Using your pattern, cut out the fabric.

3. Hand wash the cut outs in the sink with warm water, rubbing the material between your fingers to get the fringes started. Lay out to dry.

4. Appy applique glue to the back of the tie with your fingers or a brush.

5. Smooth the tie onto your tshirt or onesie.

6. Sew about an 1/8 of an inch away from the edges of the tie.

7. Place on cute little boy and show it off!


  1. Really cute and simple! Can I hand sew it? I'm new to the sewing world =)

  2. Super cute!!! Thanks for sharing!!!

  3. Just made one for my son for an Easter Present. Used a nice t-shirt instead of an undershirt. I used heat-n-bond instead of the adhesive and did a zigzag sticth around edges. Turned out cute.
