Clip-on Tie Repair

I have five boys and a lot of ties.
Zipper ties are great, but not durable.
Clip on ties hurt their chests. (we fixed that here, though!)
Real ties don't stay tied when you play with them.
My boys get bored in Church and play with their ties.
We have a lot of broken ties.

The solution?
Reshape them into a tie--sew them into place and loop them through the top with elastic!

They won't hurt their chest and last longer than a zipper tie.
If the elastic breaks, just replace it.  Easy peasy.
