Men's Tie Handbag




I have a good friend who gave me a bag of ties and when I saw a really cute bag made from ties at a quilt show I decided to try my hand at one. I used 6 ties and opened them out, leaving the large part at the bottom so as to still look like ties. Then I used the smaller end at the top for the tabs with buttons. After sewing them together I used crazy quilt embroidery on the seams.


I used two pieces for the pocket and embroidered it. I have had a lot of compliments on it.



I collect old sewing items and have two tin can pincushion
chairs...just sticking to my pincushion theme!!!!
