I made this tie skirt a few years back.  Don't wear it much anymore... you can see the reason printed on a tie on the front.  (It's a motorcycle)  Sorry I didn't iron it!
The ties were all $0.50-1.00 at Goodwill on sale. There are so many weird ones in there. This skirt got TONS of compliments, but it was really easy. The waist band is a tie too, then just _whip in a zip, zip, zip_ and a button and viol!

Cut six sections of tie from small end, each about 4" long.

Working on wrong side of fabric, iron sides and point as shown. Bend florist wire into shape and secure wire into folds using Stitch Witchery, Heat and Bond or something similar. (Note the different lenghths of wire extending from the raw edges.)

Pinch the free wire ends together and wrap the shorter end around the longer end of the wire.

Take 2 petals and, with right sides together, join with florist tape. Pair the others likewise.


Now join the three pairs together and secure with florist tape. Shape flower (one up, one down as shown) Add silk greenery if desired.

Hope this makes sense!

The flowers are so cute! I may just have to make a boquet of them for my friends birthday.

I make tie purses like a banshee. I started with just making them for friends, but now I've been enlisted to make them as giftbags- I love them esp. as these if not only for how they can be made to perfectly fit the gift. Anyways, I LOVE these ideas- I can't wait to try them all!
