New Necktie Sewing Projects

After saving a bunch of AMAZING neckties from the 70's I thought it was high time to make something from them.

First, a skirt....



Then a bag, of course. Because the neckties from this era are wider, not as many are required for each project.



Here's a new purse design. The schoolbag was lots of fun, but it's been five years since I designed it and I wanted to present something new. This is a shoulder bag, large enough for your books. I hope you like it!

LOVE the new necktie shoulder bag - but my favorite is still my granny bag (not a necktie bag). I never fail to get compliments on it!
