Make a custom tie by creating your own necktie pattern. A wide selection of silk necktie fabric can be found at fine fabric shops. Imagine delivering a hand-sewn tie to Dad on Father's Day or stitching up some brightly coloured ties as a fun fashion accessory. Making a necktie created with your own pattern is an economical and wonderful opportunity for creative expression. With a few simple supplies and some old ties, necktie patterns can be easily created for men, women and children.

  1. 1

    Carefully cut the stitching from the old necktie, being careful not to cut through the fabric.

  2. 2

    Iron the unstitched necktie flat.

  3. 3

    Place the flattened necktie on the unrolled freezer paper. Use the straight pins to pin the fabric to the paper.

  4. 4

    With the pencil, carefully trace around the fabric. Unpin the fabric and use the ruler to make sure all the lines are straight.

  5. 5

    Cut the pattern from the freezer paper. You can now use this pattern to cut out fabric for a necktie. Necktie fabric is cut on the bias, which means the centre seam of the pattern is placed on an imaginary line that goes diagonally across the fabric grain.
