mr. finn's new tie

a couple weeks ago i was sewing lucy a skirt and dreaming of being ambitious enough to make her a christmas dress, when i felt a little sad that i never make anything for the boys. what would i make, though? all they wear are t-shirts and shorts, really. then, on the same note of something for christmas, i decided maybe i could try making little boy neck ties. a quick online search found me this pattern (which i modified a little to make it more my kids' sizes. this seems like it is maybe for an 8-10 year old... maybe... i am not really sure, it was just too long for my boys is all i know...).
anyway, i tried this first one on finn for size and he is now obsessed with it. he is rather in to accessories, after all. so now he asks to wear it, whether it is with a button-down shirt or just a t-shirt. either way, he thinks he's pretty cool...

I agree with Erin...you should make him one out of terrycloth...but seriously they are great pictures of sweet Finn...I like the closeup with his chubby little hands.
