A Happy Father’s Day Gift for You
June 16th, 2010 by georgia leigh

We’ve moved! Click on the image below to go to the Men’s Tie Pattern on our new website!


I wanted to do something Father’s Day-ey for all my lovely readers this week and decided that we all needed a really fab men’s sewing pattern. Of course, there’s always the Car Visor CD Holder Tutorial, but I wanted something new. Something really fresh.

So I worked my fingers to the bone and ignored my family to bring you our first FREE PDF pattern download: The Best Men’s Tie Pattern! Ever wondered what our PDF patterns are like? This is your chance to have your very own free of charge!

SO guess what? I have a tie JUST like the one in the above picture in my shop right now! What luck! I only have one tie listed and that’s the one. My husband adores his and I’m sure your special guy will too!

This is my favorite shot:

puking pastilles - 377

I had planned on doing a photo shoot with Mr. Puking Pastilles this morning with him wearing my favorite dress shirt of his. Here, let’s imagine it together: it is black with very dark gray stripes (small stripes, very subtle). This tie is going to ROCK with that shirt. Our morning did not cooperate with us.

I think you’re going to LOVE this pattern! It makes a rather thick tie with a nice fat knot. However, because it is made from cotton and not silk, it is more bulky and doesn’t do well with double windsor knots. But it is guaranteed to please.

Try it and put your photos in our Puking Pastilles Flickr Pool! We draw winners on the last day of every month to receive fun prizes.


NOTE: In order to get this pattern out to you in time for Father’s Day, I haven’t sent this out to my pattern testers yet. There are a couple of tiny things that need tweaking, but I think you’ll find it still totally rocks.

    This is amazing! Thank you. My man loves skinny ties, which you can never find. Now I can play with this pattern and make him skinny ties! Excellent.
    Thanks a million!

    Thanks for the tutorial. I love free and a tie is such a great idea. Have you ever tried ties for little boys? They are so hard to find in stores and I’ve been wanting to make one for my sons. Thanks!

    Lisa–I haven’t tried it myself, but Ottobre design has a free boys’ tie pattern on their website. However, I don’t suggest turning it inside out per their instructions. Follow the method in Steps 7-11 in my pattern instead.

    I spent a whole hour trying to turn a tie inside out last night. Don’t do it. haha! Here’s the link to the boy’s pattern:

    And don’t forget to add seam allowances before you cut.

    Awesome! I have actually wanted to make Ben a tie, but didn’t have a pattern or something to go by! He’s a school teacher so I can think of some pretty fun ideas for him!
    Although, I don’t know the difference between the knots or what he uses, so I wonder if that’d be a problem or not.. lol

    I love it. My man hates wearing ties, so it would be nice to give him some that fit his personality for those times when the tie is non-negotiable!

    Thanks so much for the pattern! I am gearing up for the last HP film premiere (noting your name, you must be a fan as well), and was thinking of making ties for all my daughter’s friends (one of each house) that are going with us. (As a professor, I don’t need one – but may make myself a scarf.) Now that I found your site – I’ll definitely be back!! ;)

    Hi, I printed the pattern and discovered it does not fit together – when I put parts 1 and 2 together, the sides are not straight, but one bends in a strange angle. What did I do wrong?
    Thanks for help!

    I just used this pattern for a tie and when I went to make the final folds I realized that it was going to be *way* too thick, especially down at the skinny end. Remembering the construction of a couple of commercially sewn neckties that I dismantled a while ago, I unbasted the sides and removed most of the lining, leaving it only where it shows at the ends of the tie plus another inch or so. The lining still looks great and the tie is a nice thickness in the middle. Bonus for future ties: much, much less lining material required!
