My father had lots of ties and I hate to get rid of them. I saw on TV where someone had made pillows out of the ties as keepsakes. Does anyone know where I would get the instructions? It would really mean a lot.

If you have enough ties you might also consider making this really cool door wreath as a keepsake too :-)

Can someone tell me how do you do this?

I would measure a standard pillowcase to get the right size, including a seam allowance. Ties can be unfolded and the entire length of the fabric can be used or you can sew the tie as it is folded. Either way, you will need to patchwork the ties together. Probably if you sewed two similarly sized ties together (unfolded), they would fit together pretty well and make a rectangle, possibly wide enough for one side of a pillowcase.


Good luck and let us know how it turns out.
