Creating a fresh new look when sewing menswear can be as simple as making a new tie. With a dash of fun fabric (you only need 1 yard of fabric and 1 yard of interfacing fabric) and a couple of hours, you can make a dapper tie for the guy you know using this tutorial from Jaime David at WeAllSew. The key to a good necktie is a soft fabric, cut on the bias, and some good structure for support.
Most quilters have probably made a pillow case sometime in their quilting careers, some have made pillows too we're guessing. But how many of you have created a pillow with a serger? Jaime David over at WeAllSew has a PDF handout and tutorial to show you just how to do that as Serger Month keeps rolling along.
