Love Your Slob

Hey, gang. Our trip to D.C. was fun and we got to visit some fabulous friends. And we got home soon enough that I was able to head up to the craft room to make something.

I had this tie napkin pinned, but when I went to follow the link, it was dead. Still, I know how to do a fusible applique. Mostly. Sometimes. When I finally remember to use tear-away stabilizer. I figured it out on my own, but what I realize now is there was a reason I had pulled out a striped fabric. Stripes would make it easier to see the difference between the knot and the tie. In this example, not so much. But you get the idea. I love this fabric as a tie, even if the execution is iffy.

I did another search, and I found a new link to this project. This is pretty much how I made it up as I went along.

Remember to use stripes!

Thanks to all of you who are commenting regularly--or at all really--this blogging every day thing gets a little disheartening, and your little notes really help me along! I appreciate your visit and your messages.

I hope your "manly" model receives scale--or at least a peck on the cheek.
Great idea for special occasions.

Glad you had a good time--I was concerned about the car inspection taking too much of your fun time.

I rather like the idea of this one - perhaps special Santa ties are in order for Lil Sis' family as there are no men in my house and a superfluity at hers:-)

Oh that was a quick trip! :) Glad you had fun! And that you got crafting so quickly!! I tihnk I need to raid my dad's wardrobe at some stage when I visit him.....all those ties ......
Granted...they will probably be those HUGE 70s ties....but they could make for some interesting stuff!

Now that my husband is retired, I expect the only way he'll ever wear a tie again is if I stitch him one of these napkins to protect all of his Big Dog T-shirts from nasty grease spots.

Thanks for the idea.

Oh my goodness, I love it. Too bad none of the men in my life would use it. ;)
