Father’s Day Tie For Daddy

IMG_2013My daughter is very much her father’s little girl. Not only does she adore him, she looks like him & she acts like him too. There are traces of me in there too, but for the most part she is daddy’s girl. From those beautiful blue eyes & dimples to the way she has to arrange her Fruit Loops by color she is her father through & through.
Yesterday was Father’s Day & Mai had made a special gift for her #1 guy.

This was a cute & easy project for my little one. All you need is a cheap white tie, (I picked mine up for just a couple of dollars on Amazon.), fabric markers, duct tape or masking tape & a pair of scissors.

With a marker draw out your letters one at a time on a piece of the masking or duct tape.

Place the letters on the tie. Make sure they are flat & pressed firmly.

Using fabric markers, let your little Picasso go to work coloring the tie.

Remove the letters slowly. If as your are removing them you see that the letter isn't properly  form, replace it & give it a little bit of any outline.

Mai was very proud of her homemade gift & daddy loved it. I hope all the Father’s out there had a wonderful Father’s Day.
