i make headbands out of them.
i just cut them, sew up the cut end, put a button on the cut end and a button hole and on the pointy end and voila insta headband Smiley and everyone always compliments me on them. they say "is that a tie???" haha.

i overheard a woman once talking about a patchwork scarf she had made out of her husband's old ties.

I've always felt that ties could be sewn together (somehow) to make a funky quilt topper.

Not exactly sure of the vast quantity that would be needed, but they could be used to make a kinda starburst pattern atop a simple background.

I have seen ties used on quilts before and they are fabulous. The texture is so great.  If any of you ever have a chance to go to the art museum in Columbus, OH there are some wonderful fabric creations there.

I made the chokers, too, then I used the remnants, along with some ribbons, to cover some bookboard I made into journal covers.  It makes a nice, patterned accent.

A friend of mine had a pillow made out of pieces of her dead uncle's ties all pieced together and trimmed with rickrack at the intersections.  It was a show-stopper.

There are 2 tie threads on craftster that I've seen right now:
Tie Purse and Tie Skirt that both have some good ideas. I've been following these because I also bought a bunch of cool ties recently.

does anyone have information or links for making skirts, etc using men's neckties?  I bought a huge bag (over 100 ties!) at a thrift store today for $3.95, and I know I can do something with these. Even a quilt would be good.  I know there's a book called "Daddy's Ties" about quilts that I want to buy, but I can't find any other link ideas.  I heard an old copy of Sassy Magazine had something, but I need more info. Thanks

Thank you--I saw the projects after I initially posted.  I'm obsessed with ties now, and see them in everything!!!  Dresses in magazines...I see how ties could be used for ruffles, straps, pockets, and other details.  Ditto for purses.  I haven't been this inspired in a long time!  I cannot wait to see your tutorial.

A friend of mine used old ties as inserts in the side seams of her jeans to make them bigger. The shape of the tie makes a cool flare at the bottom of the jeans! I'm in the process of making my own pair right now.
