Crafts Using Men's Neckties


I am trying to find photos of a rug or quilt made from men's old ties. Will someone mail me a photo and an instruction book? I'm 77 and need a post retirement project. Thanks.

There are probably all sorts of different styles but here is how one quilt was made with ties:

For inspiration there is a photo group at flicker where everything is made with ties. Just click on the particular "tag", like quilt or rug. http://preview.tinyurl.com/3tp97m

This blog is all about things made from ties:
