How prepared are you for Father's Day on Sunday? Well if you're still looking for something special, I found the perfect solution!


Some days ago I received this Father's Day Tie pattern by email from Purl Soho, for FREE! And yesterday I decided to try, of course, with Island Batik!


I will not publish all the fabric requirements because it is not my pattern and the idea is for you to visit their link also. But I can say that it is a pattern for a widest point tie (my favorite style), 55 1/2" long by 3" wide.


After printing the pdf with all the templates (be sure to get the updated version of the pattern), cut it, before you tape them together I would suggest you align the templates by the "Fold" side, sometimes it doesn't match perfectly and you really want to have a straight line on the "Fold" side of each template.


Island Batik Fern Leaves in Opal



For my tie project I decided to use Fern Leaves in Opal, one fabric design from Sand Bar Collection, designed for Kari Nichols of Mountain Peek Creations by Kathy Brett Engle. If you are curious about this collection, you can check all the details on my blog post A piece of... Blog Hop: The Fisherman's Tale, from last November!





It's an easy going project, even for a quilter with not so much experience with garments like ME! Talking about my quilter side I substitute the Heavyweight Sew in Interfacing for Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 Cotton/Poly batting and it worked marvelously.


For machine sewing, I used Schmetz Microtex (Sharp) Needles size 80/12 and Aurifil thread 50wt in colors 2910 and 5023.


And here is my Island Batik version of the Father's Day Tie:



Happy Fathers Day, and Yes! It's my hub's shirt :)
