It's the first time I've posted an accessory and it occurred to me that I have no idea where they should go so apologies if this is in the wrong place  Shocked

I had seen something similair on Etsy but I cannot find the link to share unfortunately, basically the concept is using the twist and turn method of making flowers but using a mens tie, it's the perfect shape (you start at the small end) and once you're done just make a few tacking stitches to keep it altogether.

I love oversized accessories and this seemed like the perfect tie for the job and only cost me a buck!


Would love to hear what you think  Grin

I think that's ADORABLE! Yay for making new things out of ties! Don't you think ties are a silly concept? I love the size of it and that jacket you have it pinned on is lovely.

Looks really good! I didn't work out it was a tie until I saw the title.

Very nice!
I've always thought that making something new out of old ties is cool... never done anything myself, yet.

I love this idea! Could you post a tutorial for this? Or explain the process a little more; I think it's really cute and would love to try it:)

Thanks for the lovely comments ladies, I can post a tutorial it just won't be for a week until hubby gets off work and I can get out without the little fella to pick up another tie.

If you're going it alone anyway, pick up a tie that isn't skinny, a kipper tie (big fat 70's one) or a regular tie is fine but you won't get the same effect with a skinny tie. Also I just twisted and turned, just like this tute (it doesn't use a tie though)

http://youseriouslymadethat.blogspot.com/2010/12/hair-rosette-tutorial.html

twist the tie over then turn the rosette as you go, because the tie has some interfacing it will keep its shape but may want to unfold, this is where you pinch from underneath and add a few stitches.

I hope this is enough to be getting on with until I get busy with a tute.
