The textiles for men’s ties are so great. We’re going to use these fabulous fabrics to make something completely new.

Tools and materials:

  • Tie

  • Button
  • Large safety pin
Stitching and gathering

1. Stitch and gather

Start at the tip of the thick side of the tie and sew a simple straight stitch along one edge.

4. Wear it around your neck

I have found two really cool ways to wear this accessory.

The first is to wear it around your neck. Thread the long skinny end of the tie through the safety pin to create the loop.

5. Belt it

You can also wear it as a belt. Thread the end of the tie through the safety pin to secure it as a belt. It creates such a unique look.

    Nicely done refashioned tie, looks great. Hitting garage sales on Saturday morning to scoop up some ties.

    I wonder why she looks so bored, I'll be sporting a smile when I wear mine.
