What advice would you give someone starting this project? If the ties are different widths, you will need to make them a consistent size before you start sewing. Open the tie backs up...they have a lot of fabric in them! Keep the points of the ties intact. You won't have to do anything to finish them...they are already finished!

My husband has loads of ties and I'm trying to get him to give me enough to do this for him now. He's being a bit stingy. Ha! Linda

I have bunches of our dad's ties saved to do something with. I think this project is my answer. I can make one for each of my siblings! Thanks for sharing your beautiful work.
