  • How to make a neck tie. Diy Neck Tie - Step 1
    Step 1

    Using an existing tie, cut out two templates from the heavy fabric (one for each end of the tie). Similarly, cut out the same shapes from the decorative fabric – but with some excess fabric on each side. Finally, cut out two triangles from the decorative fabric that over fit the ends of the other decorative fabric pieces you have cut. This will give you 6 pieces (see photo).

    With the decorative fabric pieces face up, place the end pieces on top (face down) and the heavy material template on top again.

    Sew along the bottom two edges of the triangle (leave the long top edge). Turn these inside out to hide the seam – you will now have two separate pieces, as shown in the photo.

    Step 4

    Sew these two long pieces together along the flat end (i.e. not the triangle end). You’ll need to carefully line up both the decorative fabric and the heavy fabric template, then sew them together. Make sure to fold the ends of the decorative fabric inwards before you sew – this way, the seam won’t be visible from the back.

    Now you have a full length of material. Fold over one side of the excess decorative fabric twice, so the raw edge is hidden. Do the same with the other side and stitch together down the length of the tie with a hidden stitch.
