this is my first post so sorry if i do this all wrong Sad and sorry if someone already posted something like this!
i was clicking around on craftster and found a topic where someone was looking for help on making a tie wallet, and someone gave them a link, i went to it, and i printed off the directions and i made it, but i modified it and added some things in (since it didnt even tell you to sew the sides down)
but i thought i'd post this and i hope you all like it- it is REALLY easy, even for me and i'm horrible at sewing! Smiley
*i used pictures of two ties- i hope its not too confusing!

Tutorial:
all you need is a regular men's tie, needle, thread, and something like velcro or snaps

first you just cut your tie at the length you want.  I recommend somewhere between 18 and 15 inches (this is measuring from the wide part up the tie)- it depends on if you want a taller wallet, or a smaller one, I cut about 15 or so inches...
then you lay the tie out so the back side is up.  fold about 1 inch of the cut end up so that 1 inch of the good side is over the bad side.
sew it down, but only go through the top layer of cloth
it should look like this:

(the white is the material inside the tie)- it's ok if it doesnt look pretty, because you wont see it anyways Smiley
now flip the tie over onto the good side. fold about 1/3 of the way up.  if you then folded the tip of the tie over it, the tip should just barely hang over

next you are going to sew up the sides.  Start sewing in the middle (at the top of the folded over piece where there is 3 pieces of cloth) and sew down to the bottom of the tie where there is 2 pieces.
when you are done, carefully flip the pouch you have made, inside out. it should look like something like this...

the white line in the middle is where the opening is
now all you have to do is attach you velcro or alternative- just stick a piece on the back tip of the tie, and the other piece on the outside of your pouch!
have fun!

Yeah, what an easy project! A girl at my school has a pouch purse thing made from a tie.

i REALLY like these!

i always wanted soemthing cute to do with my ties... but a lot of tie-related projects look tacky to me.

this is great too, because you can still use the other end for other stuff!

example.... those cute chokers lekkner makes [im too lazy to find the link]

Great idea, artsypansy. I revamped your idea a bit to make myself a cell phone holder out of a tie, and it turned out supercute; thanks for the inspiration!

ooh, i made one of these a wee while back .... it was to carry my 'tampons and panty liners'  so they didnt get messed up in my big bag... funny!  (the tie wallet is a perfect size for about 6 tampons and a few liners) Tongue
