I tried making a skirt out of ties. I failed because I forgot to take my butt into account when doing measurements...
Long story short, I think polyester seventies ties are the cat's pajamas, so I had to do something with them.
And why not a purse?
I rather like the dangly ends of the ties. I was originally gonna chop em off, but I've grown attached. They're kinda funky, I think.
Also, I was thinking of using the tip of one end as a button loop and putting a dress button from a men's suit as a clasp.
What are your opinions? This is a prototype, so I'll be keeping it (SHUCKY DARNS!) But I am making one as a gift for a friend, and also a few to sell. (I can post a tutorial if you guys want when I am making the next and hopefully better one) But what could be improved? Suggestions? Thoughts? Anyone?
I have soooo many ties, I think my next one will be mauve and tan, my friend's fav. colors.
That is all.
