Carefully follow the below instruction;

  1. Hold an adult necktie up to your child. Place the bottom of the tie at the desired placement on his torso. Cut the tie where it meets his collarbone. Set this aside.
  2. Cut the tie remnant down to 4 inches long. This piece will create your tie's faux knot. Discard any leftover tie.
  3. Preheat your iron on the "silk" heat setting.
  4. Place the 4-inch piece face-down on your ironing board. Take one end and fold in toward the center at a downward angle. Iron the folded edge.
  5. Repeat Step 4 with the opposite end.
  6. Flip the knot over so it is right-side up. Your knot should look like an upside-down trapezoid. Tuck any hanging tails into the knot so it's hidden from the front. Iron all edges flat.
  7. Open the bottom, pointed, tie piece--face-down--on the ironing board.
  8. Fold the sides inward, at an angle, until the tie is your desired width. Iron the side edges and cut off any excess fabric that shows from the front.
  9. Place a small stitch on the back of the tie to secure both folded pieces together.
  10. Hold the long tie piece and pinch the top, raw edge to form a dimple. Run your needle and thread through the dimple and tie the thread into a knot on the back. This will secure the dimple.
  11. Place your knot face-down and insert the top of the tie inside the knot, also face-down. Hand-stitch the knot to the tie tail. Be sure to securely connect the pieces without thread showing from the front.Stitch the elastic to the back of the tie's knot.
  12. Cut your elastic to fit around your son's neck. The elastic should be smaller than your child's collar, but not snug. Stitch the elastic to form a loop.
  13. Stitch the elastic to the back of the tie's knot and that would be all.
I hope the above helps.....

Good luck.

How do I attach the fabric seat of my evenflow supersaucer? It was detached for washing and now I cannot figure out how to re-attach it. Fran. email:[email protected]

Nope still couldn't get it following the instructions....Finally figured it out. start with the 3 plastic rings fully assembled on the saucer. Then you need to pull the fabric over the top of the upper plastic ring and then feed the elastic through between the upper ring and the middle ring from the outside to the center through the 1/4 inch space and then attach the elastic bands to the hook point. The fabric needs to be surrounding the upper plastic ring such that your child will not rest against the plastic directly with their head. the plastic tabs are really only for reinforcement, even though they fit perfectly and snap right in the the middle ring (took me a while to get over that).
