Lay Ties on Pattern

Lay out the ties so that they cover the paper pattern. Once the pattern of neckties is decided, cut the ties down at the top and the bottom, keeping the ties a bit larger than the pattern. You will need approximately seven ties for the front and seven for the back. The width should end up being a little wider than the pattern. Save two of the discarded tie ends to use as handles.
