Hallo...I think this is possibly the first time I've posted in this section (at least that I can remember).  Anyhow, I'm always on the lookout for really neat vintage ties, coz the fabric is perfect for lots of things - like lining the ears of plush bunnies, or making appliques, or whatever.  So, I have lots, and I was looking at one of them and had a minorly miraculous brain-wave, which resulted in these pouches!  They are the perfect size for glasses cases, or for pens and pencils.  They're SOOOO easy to make, I whipped these three up in under fifteen minutes - no joke.  Just snip, sew the end up, add a button hole and a button.  You could easily applique designs on, or embroider...the fabric of these one was so busy I didn't want to add any more clutter.  Just make sure if you try it, that the tie is wide enough for whatever you want to use the pouch for, and off you go.







Pardon the blurry pictures, but you get the idea.  Not a bad little idea, hey?

Wow! What an awesome idea! It's simple, fast, and just plain darling! I need to find me some ties... Thanks for the inspiration. I love old cool ties, but never know what to do with them until now! I'm punching the "This Rocks" button because it does.  Grin

That is a really cute idea, and I might have to just try that!

Wicked!   Cheesy  I'm glad you're all as impressed with the weird simplicity of it as I was.  It was one of those "Duh - why haven't I done this before?!?" kind of things, y'know?

Oh!  By the way...I know you're all crafty enough to make these yourself, but on the off-chance that somebody's not a sewer but likes these, I only really need one  Cheesy  so I'm up for trading a couple of them!  I like old photos, stickers, beads or charms...anything little that you could throw in an envelope.  Make me an offer!!
