It looks wonderful. From what I can see, the construction is really good and the embellishments look cool on it. Personally, I think the ruffle and lace is a little much, but other than that, it is something I would definitely buy.

Hey guys,
This is my first picture post and my first ebay listing. It's a clutch purse made from blue neckties. I posted the picture on the craftster host site but I need to figure out how to get it here!
Its' listed on ebay as "Purse from reconstructed vintage neckties".
Let me know what ya'll think and be honest, I can take it.

to post the pic, just go the page it's on. there should be a little text that says [img]  and then [/img ]  and you just copy and paste that code into your post!

I think your clutch is great.  I've heard (and I haven't sold on ebay so what do I know) that people have better luck selling craft supplies vs. hand made crafts on ebay.  If you don't get much response you might want to try etsy instead.  I've sold a few bags on there.

I think this is super nice. I love the ruffle, and the whole thing. I have sold tons of tie purses on ebay, all of them much less nice than this one. I think you will do fine. you should raise your price to $25 at least. It is a lot of work, and I think it will sell better at that price. I have found on ebay, there are 2 types of buyers. The ones looking for a good deal and the ones looking for something unique. You have something unique, and your price should reflect that. Sorry if I sound like a know it all. I don't mean to. Also, have confidence that you have something good, make more and keep listing them. ebay is weird, and sometimes something that won't sell for the asking price one week will go for twice as much the next. Keep going for it. Make sure your title has words that people will be typing when looking for your item. I LOVE THE PURSE! I even made my husband come look at it, and he liked it too! Good Job!!!

Funkenstein, thank you so much for the encouragement. Actually I just listed $9.99 as the starting bid and I do have a reserve price. It is a lot of work (and a lot of fun). Only someone who sews appreciates the amount of work involved. I did agonize over how to list the purse, I think I will try "handmade" or "handcrafted" next time. I read your post to my husband and he laughed when I got to the part about you making your husband look at it. I do that to him all the time  Cheesy
Jerome, I checked out etsy and there are some necktie purses listed. I don't think I can compete with the $11 price though. I couldn't do all that work for such a small amount of money.
Thanks to all for the comments, keep them coming.
