    This is as cool as the tie dresses and skirts I used to make in the 80’s!!!!!!!!! I love this!! Some things are destined to become new ideas just by way of their original shape!! I just love how repurposing makes us see things in new ways we might not have before!!!

    Oh! Those are so fantastically, cool! What creativity, what wit! And I just love the idea of turning something as masculine as a necktie into a feminine piece. Thanks for sharing!

    There is evidently a bundle to identify about this. I assume you made certain good points in features also.

    Oh that bag looks great! I like the way how these different patterns and colors mixed up and complemented each tie to make the bag. I have a lot of gold ties just sitting around the house and I was thinking of disposing them. Thank you for giving me an idea how to use these ties!
