Embroidered Necktie


Today is my boyfriend's birthday. He's a necktie-wearing musician so I embroidered a gramophone on a vintage tie. I used thread that blended in to control the flash aspect, but you could certainly make a bolder tie for a bolder dresser.
I used this tutorial from Craft Stylist as a guide.

This is really neat! I have been trying to find a unique project idea for a gift for my boyfriend, and this is really perfect. I like the gramaphone- not sure what I'll go with, but it will probably be something antique-y as well.

Last night Matt's band played and he wore the gramophone tie. I think he likes it.
