Find simple sewing and craft projects made from old neckties.
By Karin BeuerleinMore in Decorating
Sharee Johnson of All Things Necktie at Etsy.com makes these simple mini purses entirely from neckties or from a single necktie and a coordinating fabric, as shown. Using a paper pattern, she cuts a large square for the purse body and a smaller square for the flap; then she lines and stitches together, sewing on a shoulder strap of waxed cotton cord. Johnson recommends using iron-on interfacing to stiffen tie fabric for sewing projects, as neckties are constructed on the bias and tend to stretch.
