Silly Over Sized Felt St. Patrick's Day Tie for Ken (Barbie), No-Sew Tutorial

This silly over sized tie for St. Patrick's Day is a fun little project that literally comes together in minutes. The most time consuming part is waiting for the glue gun to heat up! You could use a little scrap of green, orange or gold felt. Have some sequins or beads to add as embellishments? Glue them on too, anything goes:) I love this idea for adding a little seasonal or holiday fun to doll play.
  • Cut a rectangle of felt 4" long by 1" wide.
  • Fold top over about 3/4" and hot glue lower edge down. Be sure to leave a tube (or sleeve) towards the top so you can feed ribbon through the hole. *Suggestion after I made mine: It would be easier to lay a 4" piece of ribbon or thin piece of felt on the tie before you glue the lower edge down.
  • Fold the two sides of the back together, glue the tie together where you glued the lower edge in the step above.
  • Fold bottom in half towards the back, measure up about 1/2" or so from the bottom and cut a tip into the bottom of the tie.
  • *If you didn't lay your ribbon on the felt before gluing in step 2 above, feed it through the hole with a needle or safety pin.
  • Hot glue a little velcro to the ribbon to secure the tie on doll. 

 Ken says he's ready for the parade now😎
