Step 1: Stole tie from unknowing husband. (Poor thing doesn’t know what the heck is in his closet. He’s fashion blind.)
Step 2: Snatched a handful of pins. You should be careful not to get poked- I’m just saying. These pins will be used to hold together the temporary folds.
Step 3: Placed the tie around my neck and began folding and pinning. Do this until you have a necklace size that suits you. If you are like me, at this point you will have: 1. Cursed about $1000 into your curse jar and 2. Have enough pin holes around your neck to require a transfusion.
Step 4: Sewed the folds in place from the underside of the tie. I did this because I didn’t think to glue it until now. Darn it! I swear sometimes my brain is like a solid brick of lard!
Step 5: Cut away the excess and sewed a matchy button onto the front of the tie. Under this button be sure to sew a snap closure that will attach the two pieces around your neck.
Side notes- I could’ve made a button hole and all that fancy stuff but making button holes has proven to be my new Dante’s hell!
This is my "cool" face. I should have slathered on some lipstick!
K-bye now, I have to go find an outfit to wear this with.
