Love it, I must show my 18 year old daughter this. She will only wear and use unusual creations.
Looks cute! I have this on my to do list. I've heard that it's important to make sure all the ties are of the same fabric content, not a mixture such as silk/polyester. I suppose this has more to do with laundering later, but it might also affect the sewing process.
I am looking for a pattern for a purse made from one necktie. I'd like to get step by step directions and a photograph.

Start your search here:
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.
How can I make a cosmetic bag from silk ties?

Maybe you can find it in a pattern book in fabric store, good luck.
There are suggestions here on Thriftyfun about that, check the index or Google using old ties for purses and you get the links as well as many others uses and pattern ideas for old ties.
