Enjoy making reconstructions, especially from silk neckties - and challenge myself to keep the "essence" of the tie.  Trying for a "recognizable" original within a pretty and newly functional item.  One of my favoites are these "treasure bags" 


So what do you think? ? ? ?  Hope you enjoy them too!  Thanks for looking.

Thanks arrythmia,  they are truely vintage neckties - the big end makes the pouch and the small end makes the embellishment tie.   The ribbons and beads are usually new.   It is a fun way to use the really special patterns on some of the older,  stained and/or  frayed ties.

OH my goodness, I love them!!  I have just learned to make drawstring pouches, and I love to make them as renaissance faire gifts.  I may just have to copy your idea, my dear!
