How to Make Necktie Valentinescomments (17) February 7th, 2014
Then, trim that second tie so it's short enough to tuck behind the first tie, as shown. Once the ties are cut, remove any labels and padding from them both.
Turn under 1/2 inch at the cut end of the longer tie. Hand- or machine-sew this hem in place. (I usually hand-sew because the seam is so short and this stitching will be completely hidden in the finished heart.)
Now to fuse these two pieces together. Cut a small rectangle of fusible web-it should be small enough that no fusible web will stick out beyond the ties. Peel off one side of the paper backing and place the fusible web on the back of the longer tie, following the placement you see here. Then, peel off the second paper backing.
