This coming week is the last week of school, and my principal said that we could wear jeans all week, as long as we wore either a staff shirt or something nice, to stay professional looking. I'm thinking that a tie would raise the bar to professional.
This morning I saw this tutorial, from Maybe Matilda. I raided DH's closet for a tie and came up with my very own pleated necktie necklace. I made a couple of changes. First, I decided that since it really did look like a tie, I would use the skinny end in the design, using the entire tie. Second, I ended up hand sewing the top edge so that it lays nicely.
And I happened to have the perfect button for this!
After I finished, DH made some comment to the extent that people probably look at me and think that I should just go shopping to buy things. Not. This is way more fun!
So, will this dress up my jeans enough to make my boss happy?!
