Tie the tie.

I’ve posted a few times about making toddler neck ties and I FINALLY got all my stuff together to create my very own printable pattern. For you! For FREE!!!

This is my first ever original sewing pattern and I’m so excited about it!

Click to download Boys Neck Tie Patterns:

Sizes 3, 4, and 5 should fit boys of those ages.

I’ve included some guidelines on the pattern to make sure you get it put together properly:

  •  TURN OFF any sizing to fit, etc. You want to fill up the whole page.
  • I put a 1 1/4″ square on the pattern so measure it after you print to make sure the scale is correct.
  • All the cutting instructions are on each pattern – cut on the fold, one from main tie fabric and one from a lining fabric,  etc.
  • There are bold straight lines that go across the bottom of each pattern page – those lines need to match up so you can either fold one down or cut it off and then tape it on top of the other one. This will probably make more sense after you’ve printed the pattern.

Print it, make it, and I hope you LOVE IT!!

hi there!! i love your tie pattern!! :) Any chance you’d be willing to make a size 8-10 pattern? i want all my boys coordinating, but I am not sure I trust myself with the pattern making! :) I can pay you through PP! {CUTE boys by the way… I have three as well. And a sister thrown in the mix too}

All you have to do is extend the straight edge (that is the center of the finished tie ) down probably 4-6″, follow the opposite edge down the same amount (the edge that is the sides of the finished tie) and draw a line to connect them that is parallel to the existing one. Make sense? I hope so, it’s really so easy, you can do it! Making it longer will make it wider at the same time so it will be perfect. Let me know if you need more help and I can post some pictures on how to do it.

Think it would work as a men’s tie? I would love to have my husband and son have matching ties!!! My husband isn’t a big guy (maybe 5ft 5in and 150lbs) how much bigger do you think it would need to be?

I just wanted to say thank you for making my neck tie project that much easier! I usually do bow-ties but a friend asked if I could do neck ties and I said yeah, well now it will be a lot easier since I don’t have to make the pattern like I had to do with the bow ties.

Thanks for sharing.
Your three little models are so cute! I don’t know why it never occoured to sew my three sons matching ties for Easter when they were little. Grateful for the grandson to use your pattern!

This by far one of the best tutorials! Love the patter and all the little extras on it (like the 1/4 check)

This is such a fun sewing project. Thank you for sharing your tie patterns and tutorials. I am excited to make them for my three little boys.

Thank you so much for the free tie pattern. I’ve been making hair bows for my 8 year old grand-daughter and 2 week old baby granddaughter along with her blessing dress and shoes and thought the boys needed something from their Nana. I think a tie will be perfect! Maybe even a half dozen for each. Thanks for sharing!

Hi! I just found (via a friend) your young men’s tie pattern and love it! I’ve printed out the tutorial also. But……..i’m having a problem. I can’t seem to print out the sz infant or the size 4 patterns. They just don’t show up. Am I doing something wrong perhaps? I’d appreciate an email so I can get these printed up asap. THANK YOU! Nancy

I’m not sure what the problem is, I’m going to be reworking the patterns and reposting soon. That doesn’t help you for now…but soon they’ll be much better!

Thank you so much for the newborn size tie. My newest grandson (7weeks old) was just blessed on Sunday and I had made a little white suit for him and my husband wanted a white tie for it. Kudos go to my husband for tieing such a tiny tie! I think I shortened it too much during the “taping the pattern together” stage. I sewed it onto the shirt and collar instead of creating an elastic neckthingy. I don’t think I’ll go into making a lot of tiny ties! Or at least not ones from fabric that frays easily!

Thanks again for sharing your talent.

Thanks so much for a great tutorial! Would it be possible to put this in PDF for those of us who don’t have Word? Thanks so much!
