I love little boy ties and tie onesies are really cute. But I love the way ties flop around when kids run around, so I made this semi-detached tie onesie. It has all the thrill of a tie onesie and all the flop of a real tie! (I made this for a baby shower, don’t worry, it’s still a girl!)
Tie Onesie Materials
- *blank onesie
- *scraps of fabric, I used shirting weight cotton
- *pattern piece download
First, cut out two tie pieces and two knot pieces.
Sew the tie pieces and knot pieces together, right sides together. Leave the top edges of the tie open and leave a tiny space in the top of the knot open.
Turn your pieces right sides out.
The openings will look like this. Fold under the opening edges of the knot piece.
Pin the knot on top of the tie, in the middle of your onesie. Then sew the knot piece on. The stitching will close up the opening on the knot piece as well as secure the tie piece.
I have a few more little boy projects in the works that I sent along with this cute ensemble to a shower recently. In fact, this baby is being born today! I’m not sure he has a name yet, any suggestions I can pass along? What’s your favorite BOY name???
Landon!! Thanks can’t wait to make this for my little one:)

I love that the tie is hanging loose, gah! I was just thinking about making some ties for my little man too :)
I love this variation on the tie onesie! Next time I need to make things for a baby boy I will try one of these :)
OMG, I love this. Totally agree, the floppy tie on boys is adorable.
Another alternative, you could add a vest applique. The tie and vest onesie combo is fun on for littlest littles who are swimming in a separate vest. I made one here and it’s still a fave.http://lemontreecreations.blogspot.co.uk/2011/09/men-shirt-re-do-1-vest-applique.html
Adding this to my to-dos!!
very cute! What a good day for a birthday!
OH. MY. GOSH. Nowhere even close to baby time for husband and me (or most of our friends, for that matter), but holy crud I might make a million of ’em and just keep them around “just in case”. ACK! You’re dangerous!
I love this! I just made a tie onesie applique shirt for a new born but I didn’t think it would look good on my toddler…I’m going to have to give this version a try :)

Kate! I just made two of these tie onesies. So cute. Thanks for sharing. I cut the pattern smaller to make a newborn onesie and it still was adorable. Love your blog :)
