The Ties Are Done!

I saw some custom ties on Etsy that I loved but they were starting at $50 each so I really wanted another option. Then I remembered my coworker made a shirt for me for Christmas last year as a gift for FH that turned out really well so I asked him if he'd try to make the custom ties for me. He came through! I ordered the ties on Amazon and then he charged $8 a piece for the stuff he used and his time which for 4 ties is less than I would have paid for one on Etsy! Woot!

Just had to share cause I think they turned out really cool! FH will have the Darth Maul, My 9 year old son will have the Flash, his Best Woman will wear the Hitchhikers ones and his groomsman will wear the Thor one. For me I got a Beauty and the Beast bracelet and my MOH has a Star Trek bracelet so each person now has something that is personalized to their favorite movie/character

    He's got one of those cricut(or however it's spelled) machines that cuts vinyl. The stuff he makes makes me want to get one of those machines!

    It's vinyl! I got polyester ties so the vinyl could be ironed on without melting the ties. He does amazing work!

    It may not work for socks as well since they stretch so much but they could always try! He tested one out on an old tie before doing mine to make sure it would work

    OMG - I wish I thought of this! I have a Cricut but never thought to use it for ties! I stressed and stressed and wound up spending a small fortune on custom ties ... and I could have done it myself!

    Oh well... live and learn! I am still newish to the circuit and learning what I can do with it is ever changing!

    They look great!
