I just read about men's silk neckties. If they have an interesting pattern on them you can use them to dye your Easter eggs. They said to wrap your egg in the tie using rubber bands and let them sit in boiling water that has 1 Tablespoon white vinegar added for 20 minutes. This is of course if you can't find any uses for the ties. (04/10/2009)

I read somewhere that you could take old silk ties, rip out the seams, iron the tie flat, then piece with another tie prepared the same way and stitch together. Continue the process until you have a nice quilt top or wall hanging. (04/10/2009)

Make a vest out of them. Take your vest pattern, cut it out of polycotton or interfacing, etc. Fabric shop can help with ideas. Then take pieces of the ties and over lay like quilting, many ways to finish them. I have some beautiful vests done with little pieces of special fabrics. Lining should be a plain polyester that can give structure. (04/13/2009)
