My sweet friend Jennifer surprised me with a bag full of wonderful vintage things that she said I could have to "make stuff"! Oh boy, I was so excited!
Just look at this pile of wonderful clip on ties! The fabrics, the patterns, the colors... oh my!
So many ideas ran through my head as I gazed at each colorful design. I could put several together and create a kind of peek-a-boo slip that would add a touch of chic to the bottom of a skirt. I could sew several of them together and create a retro purse. Hmmm.... all good possibilities, but I finally decided to sit down and see how many things I could re-purpose out of just one tie.
So I picked this one:
And I cut it into 3 different accessory pieces. (I'm still perfecting the details and may be able to get one more piece out of it so when I do I will post a tutorial).
For now, here's what I made:
A clip-on Phone Case
A Pen and Pencil Holder
A Mini Wallet/Card Carrying Case
What would you do with these great clip-on ties?
