Tie Skirt- Recycle, Reuse, Recreate!

Many years ago my Aunt Jill gave me an awesome purse, made out of men's ties. I use it all the time and am often asked if I made it. It inspired me to start collecting old ties in hopes of creating a skirt with them. My tie collection has grown over the years, with donations from friends and family, as well as ones I've purchased. After acquiring enough ties I created a wrap tie skirt. I sewed the ties together, and because they are so heavy I didn't even have to line it! I used a button and tie for the closure. It was easy and fun to create, I look forward to making a purse or another skirt in the future :)
Start gathering something, anything, that interests you and give it a new life! Please share your ideas and creations with me.
