The ties I share with you today were probably the easiest of the decade. So if you hate sewing up a tie from a pattern, these may appeal to you.
I used a pre-made tie for this year, I must have been tired. Our Life with Basketball with the girls began to really take shape this year, 2007.
The next tie was made of a material called pleather. No sewing together, no seams or pressing, pretty much the easiest one I've made to date. I stitched the photos directly on the tie and labeled with archival pens. This was the themeless tie, the "Nothing in Particular", 2008 edition.
