When the calendar says it's time to celebrate your father, make the event a red-letter day (or a green or blue one) with a personalized tie.

Print Dad's initial in a large-size font, then make a stencil of it using a craft knife. Trace the letter onto the tie with a disappearing-ink pen, and embroider using a chain-stitch with a strand of embroidery floss. Visit our embroidery gallery to learn how to chain-stitch.
