Skinny ties are in all of the stores right now, but I didn’t feel like spending $60 for something with less material than its same-priced, heavier friend, the "normal tie". So I thought it’d be fun to buy a cheap goodwill tie ($3) and try out a new weight loss program called “Snip and Sew”*. Join me as we get this tie into skinny shape.
*("Snip and Sew" should not to be employed on anything but clothing.)
Steps to skinny your tie:
1) Using a seam ripper, remove the seam on the back of your tie.
2) Open up your tie and see what’s inside (if you do not have an insert in your tie, you can either make one or just fold your tie over without the guide).
3) Choose the size of your insert (without an insert, fold over the tie until it’s the size you’d like).
4) Cut the insert to size.
5) Iron your tie to make a new, crisp edge.
6) Cut off excess fabric.
7) Sew the tie together in the back.
8) Show off your weight loss champion!
Hope you enjoyed the skinnying adventures of Snip and Sew! I’ve got some other skinnying ideas coming up in a little while, so get ready!
