One hour later…

I’ve ditched the complicated quilt for the time being (I’m waiting for my woven labels to arrive) and was finally, finally able to sew something fun from start to finish with no complications. Good thing, too, since my honorary nephew (his mom and I are often mistaken for sisters) had a birthday party today. What do you give the little boy who has absolutely everything he needs and most of what he could possibly want?

A tie.

Or two.

N already has a couple – one dupioni silk, one cotton – but I just can’t get enough of making these. A tip of the hat to Madelyn from Sharing the Wealth for the tutorial. I predict that a lot of little boys in my life will be wearing snazzy neckties for Passover! (Because, you know, Chanuka isn’t usually a “dressing-up” kind of holiday.)

What can I say? I’m a sucker for instant gratification. Now I’m going back downstairs to make my baby girl a hat.
