Do you have a bag of men's ties stashed away somewhere, just waiting for a good project idea? You can stop wondering what to do with those ties that your dad or husband no longer wears. Use them to make pillows, lamp shades, wall quilts or art-to-wear. Create new treasures from old ties that are probably the same ones that you have given as gifts on Father's Day, birthdays and Christmas. Shirley Botsford's glorious book is packed with over 30 functional and keepsake projects. Included are full-size patterns, step-by-step instructions and illustrations, plus inspiration, ideas, tips and techniques to create even more.
