Well I probably shouldn't really call this a DIY since I'm not providing photos of a breakdown of steps as to how I created this little number.
I was inspired by this
Old Navy Boys Necktie Graphic Sweaters (clipped to polyvore.com)
And then made this
I call the look my office appropriate sweatshirt.
A very Reader's Digest version of what I did is:
I used two different fabrics, created a pattern by tracing a tie of my husband's onto paper, then used fabric transfer paper to piece it together and iron onto the sweatshirt and finally stitched all around in red thread.
The reason I didn't even bother taking photos of each step was that I was flying by the seat of my pants the whole way, making it up as I went along. 95% of the time when I do that the DIY doesn't work out.
Of couse it's Murphy's Law that when you don't take the photos the DIY will actually work. I should have known.
I will post another version of this same DIY that I spent almost an entired day working on that didn't turn out as I'd hoped…the one I have photos for. Oh yeah.
