I've been searching the internet for cute/easy boy things to sew. While there are hundreds of dresses and skirts and even cute pants for girls, there are very few things out there for boys. I did find a few tutorials for really easy ties. A Traditional tie and a Bow tie. I was super excited to try them out, so with some cotton calico fabric for Valentine's day (and the super cute owls Bug picked out) I whipped out these cute little guys:

They took less than a half yard to make both ties (with the same print) Although you still need to buy the half yard because of how you cut the fabric.

The bow ties were the easiest, though I did substitute velco for the bow tie hardware she mentioned, I figured if my almost 1 year old wanted it off, I didn't want him to hurt himself when he tried to ditch them.

I hope you guys find the tutorials helpful!

Very cute!!!!

There are some boy things on by Carla C. Her patterns are AWESOME! Right now they have codes for 15% off pattern purchases, too. I just got a reversible romper (boy or girl options) and a dress pattern for myself, both by her.
