Matching Ties and Handkerchiefs


I was asked to make ties and handkerchiefs for a customer’s wedding. When we discussed the wedding first of all, I thought she would require only a matching tie & handkerchief set for the groom. I was delighted when she asked me for 20 of each instead for some ushers. I was allowed to choose the design but she told me her colour scheme of blue. I chose a heart shape pattern increasing in size as they went down the tie. I drew the pattern onto each tie separately and outlined each heart with a silver gutta. I waited for this to dry before applying a variety of blues and silver grey silk paints. I ironed the ties to seal in the colours of the silk paints. The ties had to be protected from the iron’s direct heat by covering them. My label of a logo, name and phone no. Was applied to each tie. 🎨d_5ilky
