i bet that if i sorted through my ties hard enough i could sell many of them for hefty prices! (sigh) i think i'll stick to hacking them up and sewing them together...
hmm... i wonder what a tie prom dress would look like. that would be pretty cool.

speaking of a tie prom dress...one of my good friends is doing that. it is the cutest thing ever, and shes such an awesome seamstress! She's using the skinny ends at the top and it is obviously strapless. And she's buying ties that are all the same length, which is from her chest to about and inch off the floor. I envy her so very much.

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.  

Tie dress...Tie skirts...Tie hats...Tie shirts...now tie purses! Whoever thought that ties could be so versatile?!!
I love your purse. I want to make one exactly like it with matching ties (just like yours Wink love the blue flowers one), but the lining is givng me a hard time. I'm confused Huh what did you do about the bottom?

I sewed a little rectangular bag (the blue part you can see) and then just sewed the top of it to the top of the ties. The ties are sewed together along their sides, but the bottom is open. The only bottom to the bag is with the blue lining. Does that make sense?
