Mr. C walked into the room a couple of days ago when I was preparing to create Valentine's Day shirts for the boys. I was going to sew a little heart on the left chest area of these long-sleeve white polo shirts I found for $4.00! I could see him out of the corner of my eye, starring at me. I figured that he was looking and admiring my creation... When I told him of my plan for the boys, he said, and I quote, "my boys are not wearing hearts on their shirt!" After a few, why nots, he happened to mention that it would be OK if the hearts were on a tie - and that's how these button-on felt ties were created...
Step 1: I used the felt squares you can get at Micahael's for around .69 cents...Cut out a tie the length and width you want it. Make sure the top section of the tie is wide enough to fit under a collar.
Step 2: Sew your decoration on the tie, in my case a small white heart did the trick.
Step 3: Lay your felt tie over your desired shirt. I chose polo shirts, as they are more durable for my littles.
Step 4: Using a white pencil or other fabric marker, mark the button holes and prepare to cut.
Step 5: Using the button markers, take scissors and cut a small slit (long or wide enough to go over button - but small enough to stay secure)
