I held a craft swap yesterday, and it was fabulous! One of the treasures that showed up was a huge box of men’s ties.
So… what to do with them? My husband found a few to wear. I picked out a few vintage gems to sell, untouched, at a resale shop. One friend is making a tie dress — she’s already begun!
My friend Lisa pointed me to http://sewingwithneckties.blogspot.com/ — very inspirational! I especially love the Easter Egg idea, which I had never heard of before! But, it makes sense — dyes that color silk can color eggs, since they are both protein. Perhaps I’ll try that out with some of the less-impressive ties.
