With just a few days until Father’s Day, below are some fun ideas to try using neckties:
• If you have time and a large stash of ties, try making a quilt. These were very popular in Victorian times. Don’t have enough for a quilt, use the same technique to make a vest, clutch, small throw or pillow. If you want the Victorian look, you need to do top stitching and go with more of a crazy quilt design. Use the pillow pattern for inspiration and try a variety of top stitching.
• Create fabric with ties, by cutting and sewing together. Once you have the fabric, cut up to make vests, scarves, ottomans, pillows or whatever appeals to you.
So if there isn’t time to do something for Dad with old ties, make him a pair of typography glasses.
