Those are really cute! Great work! I bought a tie pattern one time, looked at it for awhile, and then gave up. Cheesy Also, don't feel bad, I finished my boyfriend's Christmas quilt this week too!

thanks girls  Cheesy
i used the pattern found here:
http://www.purlbee.com/fathers-day-ties/2009/5/21/mollys-sketchbook-fathers-day-tie.html
but i'll admit i did not follow directions. the ties do come out about 6 inches or so shorter than a normal tie but you could easily add that to the pattern before cutting fabric (which i will do next time)
