Neck tie tutorial-I really liked this one. Easy, fast, and looks great. I have made some different ties before and definitely like the way this one is tied the best. It looks great and keeps its shape. I used cotton fabric, and I'm sure silk would work well too (better with this one than my other tie tute). Lengthened it 3 inches for my older boy, and cut it down 1/4 in on each side (1/2 for smaller boy) to make a skinny tie.
