As Father’s Day is rapidly approaching this weekend, the Craft & Hobby Association (CHA) along with CHA members BurdaStyle.com and iLoveToCreate are pleased to provide do-it-yourself twists on the Father’s Day tie. With a little creativity and the right tools, Father’s Day ties don’t have be dreaded.
BurdaStyle.com provides a free tie sewing template and step-by-step instruction that can have almost anyone creating cool fashions for dad. It’s as simple as clicking the print button from your home computer, selecting your favorite fabric, and sewing it all together. The “Osman Tie” is a popular design featured at BurdaStyle.com which also provides sewing steps on finishing a unique Father’s Day tie at BurdaStyle.com’s Project Page.
If sewing isn’t for you, CHA member iLoveToCreate makes it easy to create one-of-a-kind ties for dad. Now, instead of dad getting a paper tie created at school he will be able to wear one that still captures his children’s imagination. Starting with a white silk tie as a canvas, kids can use Tulip Fabric Markers to create a wearable work of artwork personalized for Dad. Older kids and teens might get more creative by tie-dying a white silk tie using the Tulip One-Step Tie-Dye Kit. For more about creative fashions go to www.iLoveToCreate.com.
