What materials did you use? Men's outdated neckties, ivory silk for the light contrast color, polyester batting , white-on-white 100% cotton for the back, and navy satin for the binding.

wow love the ties recycle! this is awesome. Did you have to stablise materials first then cut out? As most ties are cut on the bias I wondered.

For the most part, I did not have to stabilize when cutting the ties if I was just careful and didn't get in a hurry. I only cut one thickness at a time. When I cut the silk, I pinned two layers together and taped it to my cutting mat to keep it from being too wiggly to cut straight.
