So, this started when my dad was getting rid of a bunch of ties.  Now my mom finds me bags of them (ties, not dads!) for super cheap at thrift stores.  I've made quite a few over the past couple years.  It just takes me awhile since I feel the need to completely hand sew them, so the ties lay like I want them to!
I had previously sewn on velcro for the closures, but I am liking giant snaps right now.  And I have lined one or two, but I kinda like being able to see all my tiny little stiches when I look inside!

(Please excuse my dirty floor!)

These are so fun!
I love them Cheesy

I know what you mean about handsewing being better for control.
I'm not completely used to my sewing machine yet, and it likes to make things lie crooked Roll Eyes lol

Very cool.  Now I know what I can do with some ties when I get a sackful again.

These are great!  I'm still carrying the tie purse I made before Thanksgiving 'cause I love it so much.  Yours are wonderful!

Just treat me no differently than you would the Tarantula Queen.
