The Magic Tie Trick

Okay, I know you're all pretty much women or girls out there reading this.   However, this tutorial is for men.  You know at least one man, right?  Alright then.  Let's continue. 

Apparently ties can be annoying.  I think men probably feel similarly to the way we feel about nylons or pantyhose (if you like to call them that.  That one is just a weird word if you ask me.)  Please allow my dad to demonstrate the frustration here.

They can get wet while leaning over the sink to wash your hands.


They can blow back out of place in the wind.


They can even blow in your face.  Oh, the horror of it all.


Now, we just can't have that.  So?  We're making these today. 


What the heck is that, you ask?  Let my dad demonstrate again.

You can save this part off an old shirt or make one from felt.


Just slip it through the label on the back of your tie....


....and button it to the buttons on your shirt.


And?  That tie is stuck to you like glue.  Whew!  And your secret is safe with us because no one can see your little nifty device.


I think the felt version would work well for a little guy's shirt.

My dad let me know that he was willing to be my male model for free this time, but he'll be expecting compensation the next time around.  Looks like his aren't free, ya know.

Thanks for reading.  If you're looking for more crafting fun you can head over to So You Think You're Crafty to vote for this week's crafts.  The theme is "Recycled" and we only have 4 crafters left!
