I found a box of men's ties at a local auction for $3!  It had over 60 ties in it.  I was doing a craft swap on thebatgirls.com and everything you used had to be recycled.  The men's ties are on the outside and the handle.  The lining is white fabric from some old lined drapes. 



Thanks for looking! Smiley

Very pretty!  I like the color combos you put together.  That was quite a deal for $3!

I LOVE it.  I'm a sucker for any tie creation people make.  (I've yet to brave one of my own.)  Great work!

Thanks so much!  Yeah when I saw the box for that price, I couldn't pass it up.  I had NO CLUE what I was going to make with them.  They've been sitting here for months, and finally I had the idea of a tote and it worked out great. Smiley
