Aren't ties a weird fashion statement? Maybe the men's equivalent of high heels...we force ourselves to walk on the balls of our feet and they tie a noose around their necks every day. I don't know. Anyways, they are good for other things too.



These are some cool little wallets made out of silk ties!



Yellow paisley print and dark blue with tiny apples. I didn't put a closure on them since the interfacing makes them stiff enough to stay closed on their own (and I couldn't think of a good solution after a few weeks of thought!).



Lining is some turquoise and black/white plaid cotton from stash. I think the colors complement each other really well!

I made these for some friends who enjoy crafty/recycled stuff. Hope they enjoyed them.

Thanks for looking!

They look great, I love the blank an red one the most. If you wanted, you could tie them with a string - but they are fine as they are.

What a clever use of ties. I love them.. Not only do they make super cute wallets, they would also be great as jewelry pouches.
