Tie Bags!

As you can see above I have been making bags from recycled men's ties! They are not easy because ties are made on the bias (on the diagonal for all you people who do not sew!) and that makes the fabric super stretch and not easy to work with. I really have to get these right the first time- too much manipulation and the fabric will never lay flat! No fears though, once they are sewn to the lining they are really quite stable. I have some bags for sale in my Ebay store and some on my website!
