I just made the necktie bag. It was a fun pattern. 

I did the back differently. I used the tails of the ties from the front for the back. They are narrower so it took 8 stips of the ties. I just laid them out in the same pattern that I used on the front. I liked the way it turned out. I used less ties too!

I also didn't like the ends of the 4 ties from the handles flopping around, so I just sewed them together at the top.

I'm going to make another one. This time I'm going to make it smaller. I'll use 4 ties for the front and make the gusset/handle only one tie wide. I also think I'm going to make the flap out of one wide end of a tie and two small ends with the wide end in the middle and not use velvet.

Thanks for the pattern!

Oh how cool!  What a great way to reuse old ties.  I definately need to hit up some shops for old ties!  I must make one of these!!!

I have made several of these bags and I just wanted to say thank you for the awesome tutorial. Everyone who sees my bags LOVES them, my mom has put in a request for one made with Christmas ties (half off at the thrift store, only 25 cents per tie!) and I'm so excited by them. I'm having a great time. Thank you for taking so much time to put this together for us. I'm going to try and make a diaper bag next!

That is a very cool bag! All the ties look really good together. It seems like it would hold up really well too. What a great idea.

This is EXACTLY what I'm thinking!

People on craftster are so inspiring!

I have some questions though, since I'm new to sewing and wasn't really taught anything, didnt really read much (except like one tute on here), what is backstitching, and what is a bartack?

Thanks =)

omg i love it Cheesy
