What a cool idea! I just made a tie skirt that would go perfect with this idea... it might be an overkill of 70's striped polyester... but well worth the looks.

Inspiration struck as I was typing on my computer, bemoaning the fact that I didn't have one of those fancy, no carpal tunnel wrist rests...
Make one out of two silk ties!
I haven't sewn it together yet, I don't want to wake the kids!
But stuff it with rice and lavender, maybe that will make my computer nicer to me as well!

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.

Here's a tie-purse I made:


I cut the ties into 14 inch sections (up from the bottom) and then stitched them all together by overlapping them and running a seam through the overlapping parts. I left two ties whole and used the lengths to become the strap. Then I handstitched a lining in for the actual purse part.

That's an awesome purse Anna, I especially love the tie with the little blue flowers.  I think Mike Brady wore that tie!  =)
