I will not make a habit out of sharing other people’s tutorials, but this one is adorable and works really well for our family! I originally found this tutorial here, so I will not reinvent the wheel, but here are some result pictures:
And here is a picture of him only wearing a diaper cover and tie, its not an amazing picture…I appliqued some triangles from the tie fabric to the bottom.
I used a tutorial for the diaper cover as well, but I didn’t bother printing out the pattern. I just tried to copy it the best I could (I figured the elastic would be forgiving). I made it a little small and I had to re make it, but since it only takes about a half hour, I didn’t mind.
The tie also takes about a half hour, and since my family and I travel to speak in churches, we need a LOT of ties for little one. Okay, we don’t need them, I like them. I like them a lot. My son finds ways to loose the ties we buy him, I don’t know how, but they disappear faster than socks!
One day, when I spend time in my home, I would love to sell them (mostly because I love sewing for other people). Opening an etsy shop is out of the question though because I do not feel like dealing with international shipping. Maybe Namibian boys wear ties to church, who knows?
