you can make 2 things with 2 ties from the thrift store, and one of them is a nifty shoulder bag.

That's really cute! Good idea.

by the way, the new lekkner is just wonderful. I've been checking continuously since you took it down, even though it states you would bring it back the 7th! I'm obsessed! Everything is SO NICE, I can't get over it!  : )

thanks for the nice comments!

old ties look so cool sometimes, it's hard not to mess with them in some way.

I saw some awesome accessories made from ties at an autumn art festival here in PDX.  Bags, wallets, belts, cuffs... but no supercute choker!

Thanks for the great instructions, lekkner.

That is gorgeous! I've read the instructions and I still can't believe you get such a big bag out of two ties  Huh

The choker is so cute!  Someday I plan to make a skirt out of ties.
