Newborn Neck Ties

Print Friendly

I was making some ties for my new nephew who will be arriving in May and decided to put the measurements on here so I could refer back to them when I make more!  I used the same exact tutorial that Camille used in her “little guy necktie post” which is found here. The only thing I changed were the measurements.  For a newborn sized tie I used these measurements:
I liked having a little fatter tie.  The tutorial we used originally only had the width for a 3T tie as 8 inches and after some trial and error found that I like using 9 inches for a newborn sized tie!  If you wanted to do a skinnier tie you could make the width smaller than I did.
I also made the part that goes around the neck about 12″ long. I just made sure I did a big enough strip of velcro that you could make it as small or as big as you need!

    On both the bow ties & neck ties, could Wonder Under be used? I’m not a sewer & was wondering it it would work? I want to make some ties for my 7 yo son & 2 baby twin grandsons. Thanks!

    Thanks so much for the idea and link to directions. Just an FYI to any other sewers out there: Laying the pattern out carefully, I was able to get 2 ties out of a fat quarter (with a 12″ x 2.5″ rectangle for the neck band pattern piece).
