Hi Girls!

After making skirts from the fat ends of neckties and bags from the skinny parts and daisies from the tips, I make crazy patchwork from the scraps!  Here's a Christmas Stocking that I made for my nephew, Gray.  Can you see the little tie tips coming down from the cuff?  Enjoy!

This looks fantastic.  I always love new uses for old ties.  I hope your nephew enjoys it.

As awlays gorgeous!   But where do you get sooo many ties?  I have visions of you running around downtown with scissors lopping off the ties of lunching lawyers and bankers!

That looks great.  The rich fabrics give it kind of a Victorian look.

Do you know which magazine it was?  I've been thinking about making a necktie tree skirt.  I'm wondering what kind of technique they used, and how many ties they used, because just laying out some of the hundreds of ties I have, it looks like it's going to take quite a few, and wind up rather large.

the magazine is called Today's Creative Home Arts. They used about 26 ties or so, but they have spaces in between. If you have any more questions about it, let me know and I'll tell you Smiley

For the spaces in between, did they fill it with fabric?

I also found a website that had some very simplistic instructions for making a necktie tree skirt.  They suggested 38 ties, sewn together.  I guess I'll just have to lay some out, and see.

they had a large circle piece of fabric that they sewed the ties on to, with spaces in between so the ties didn't bunch up around the center hole.
