So I'd seen these a lot for a long time, and then finally when I got the book Sew Subversive I was inspired to actually do it.

The tie was thrifted, and it has this fabulous brown swirly pattern on it. The button I bought at a sewing supply store years ago and I had never found the right thing for it.

It's not perfect, but for my first try, not bad!

Ooh!!  I'm all inspired now Smiley Smiley Smiley  I think I might just have to make one of those (only not with a buttonhole as I haven't figured them out yet.....)

Thank you for the inspiration!!

I haven't figured out buttonholes either. Do you think it would work to sew the button on the top and Velcro the top to the bottom?

When I make one I think I'll just sew the button on top and sew a couple of poppers or something underneath to hold it shut.  I'm not a huge fan of velcro as it tends to attach itself to everything I don't want it to attach to!

Velcro would probably work too, but the book gave a really simple way to do the buttonhole: just fold the tie over so that the fold is at the center of where you want the buttonhole to be, then cut! Cut just a tiny bit at first, then trim a little to make it just big enough for the button. I just stitched around mine to make it a little sturdier. So really, the buttonhole is pretty simple.

I'd love to see them if you guys make them!!
