Start your search here:

http://sewing.about.com/od/freeprojects/u/freepatternbyskilllevel.htm#s9

Look around the site, I seem to recall the guide posting patterns and instructions for creative re-purposing of silk ties, including how to clean the ties. Try the search engine feature if her pattern index doesn't help you.

You may want to try the alphabetical index on the home page of the whole site because there are several crafting guides on the site with tips on reusing ties. The DIY Fashion guide also lists reusing silk ties.

I bookmarked a pattern that I really like & have been collecting ties to make, but I can't find it now. If I find it, I'll let you know.
