My first embroidered necktie

Today, I was inspired by this tutorial at CraftStylish. I went to GoodWill and purchased a few neckties to test out my new skill.

This tie is my first attempt. I did a freehand owl design that I'd drawn up for another project. I'm pleased to report that the whole thing was done over two episodes of House - including embroidery, re-sewing up the back, applying the tag and the tack.

Hooray! Can't wait to try it out again tomorrow.
