Retro tie.

Project 1 of the 30 day project had commenced. I’m not yet finished with it, but here is what I’ve got up to this point.

Primary list of supplies:

  • retro, clip-on tie
  • neutral background fabric
  • frame
  • black paint
  • other supplies used, but not pictured include a staple gun and needle & thread

First steps:

  1. take the backing and glass out of the frame, paint it (there is no need to sand the wood, just be sure to use acrylic paint)
  2. cut a swatch of fabric to fit the dimensions of the frame (with a 1/2″ to spare on either side)
  3. iron fabric to eliminate wrinkles and creases
  4. adhere tie to fabric with needle & thread (you could use glue if you wanted)
  5. staple fabric to inner part of frame

We’ll complete the process when I finish. Apologizes for being slow, I promise I’m working on it though!
