Baby Tie | Frugal & Simple

Tutorial: Baby Tie

I was inspired to make a tie for Paxton a few months ago for him to wear to a wedding. The sweet baby tie turned out much cuter than I anticipated and he received lots of comments on it! {It’s hard to resist a baby in a tie!}

This little tie was so simple to make. It took about an hour and cost nothing since I used fabric in my stash!


  • Fabric (around 42 inches in length)
  • Thread
  • Sewing machine
  • Needle


Step 1: Cut your fabric into a long strip. I cut my fabric 42 inches long * and it was 2.5 inches at the narrowest point and approximately 3.5 at the widest (I made the bottom a little wider).

*This made a long tie for a small baby but it was easy to tie and we just tucked the extra in his shirt, plus he can wear it for a couple years since it is longer! You also may want to cut it a little wider to make it easier to flip!


Step 2: Fold the fabric in half and pin.


Step 3: Stitch up the tie. {Be sure to leave a an inch or so at the beginning to make flipping a little easier!}


Step 4: Stitch the tie end. {I cut a crude triangle  to use as my guide!}


Step 5: Flip inside out. {This was the most time consuming part of the entire project! It took about 25 minutes to flip since it was so narrow. I used a crochet hook to help me! Again, you may want to make your tie a little wider so the flipping will take less time!}


Step 6: Iron tie. Tuck the open end and press to make hand stitching easier!


Step 7: Hand stitch the open end and you’re finished! {And then have your husband tie the tie!}


Your baby instantly looks like a handsome little man with a tie on! {Fair warning, you will want to take a ton of pictures!}

If you can sew a straight stitch you can make this baby tie!

What are you waiting for? Go make an adorable baby tie!

And, I’d love to see pictures of your babies in their ties!
