I am so excited this year that I was able to make matching ties for my husband and son. I think it is something that I'm going to continue to do every year now that I have done it and it was super easy! I didn't make up a pattern myself, I used pattern Simplicity 4762. I bought it a little bit ago when it was 99cents. It took me not much time at all and I can't wait to see my men wear them.
