Inspired by the many unique necktie projects on Craftster, I brainstormed what I had a real necessity for.  As I flipped through my purse in search of ideas...the goal became imminently clear when I came across the several months old tampon that had shed its paper cover in my mess of a purse!

And from the epiphany (as a result of my sloppiness), a necktie tampon cozy was born!

Not only will this protect the little suckers...but since I am a high school teacher, this is the perfect grab for when I need to "excuse" myself to the restroom mid-class (without making the utterly obvious statement of grabbing my entire purse)!

Great idea!  What a great way to use a tie.

Now I know what I'll do with those ties that I see at garage sales!

One note I forgot to mention...be sure to remove any labels from the back of the tie before you begin.  Most are looped-on, and if you leave them...your item can get caught on them when you insert it (which is very annoying)!

You know, when I first read this post I thought it was some sort of super crafty neck wearing accessory for stashing a tampon!  No need to grab anything...lol

Hmmm...now I think I'm getting an idea.

Yeah! Why arent' there more ties with hidden pockets inside?


Even if it really was for business.... what an amazing place to stash business cards or a mini pad and pen. Amazing.




By the way, love the paisley aspect.
