T-shirt tie

It was time for one of the "big" family birthdays last weekend and the little one needed something to wear and I could only dream of getting him to wear a shirt and tie in the heat...

Luckily, I had some interfacing and enough scrap pieces of fabric with fire print in my cupboard to make an applique tie. Sewn onto a cheap t-shirt from the supermarket, it turned out really well. Even more satisfying was that he grabbed the t-shirt and pulled it over his head as soon as he saw it! In the end, he was actually the only one wearing a tie, be it a sewn on one, at the party!
