I’ve wanted to make some ties out of this Riley Blake All Star Stripes for a while. The stripes are printed on the bias, which means you can get quite a few ties out of little yardage. I made six out of 1.5 yards, plus the lining, with left over for more if the need arises. I modified Puking Pastilles’ Men’s Tie Pattern to work for my much smaller men. And I think my kids pretty much rock the look.
So why did I make six matching ties when I only have three boys? The other three are going to be auctioned off at Team Chase, January 29th through February 5th. The proceeds of the auction will go towards the $30,000 needed to fund the Chase family’s adoption of a sibling set from Ethiopia.
If you have anything you’d like to donate, let Jen Chase know the details by this Saturday, January 15th. And then make sure to head on over there 1/29-2/5 to bid on all the awesome auctioney goodness. It’s the cool thing to do.
