I've shared with you in the past a couple ideas for using a lost loved ones clothing; memory pillows and a memory quilt I made from my grandfathers clothing, really wishing I'd thought about ties now.
What an adorable belt! This is from an Etsy shop so if you follow the link you'll find all kinds of great ideas.
I love scarves, in the cooler months you'll rarely see me without one. This is such a fabulous idea. Cute, Cute, Cute!
How about a lampshade?
If you do a Pinterest search you'll find many different ways to reupholster using ties. This one is probably my favorite.
You gotta admit, that's adorable.
Clothing, lots of different ideas. I really love the re-purposes that give a nod to the original product (the tie) but don't necessarily look like you sewed a bunch of ties together. This skirt flirts with that line and I love it!
Ties make gorgeous flowers to add to purses, hats and pillows or wear as a brooch. Really cute idea.
That bugs bunny pillow is the cutest!
Quilts, again, do a Pinterest search and wow! Some really amazing designs.
Lots of unique purses as well. This one is so cute!
A rug! Beautiful, that'd also make a great quilt wouldn't it?
Lots of ways to use them for aprons.
Table runners or centerpieces? How about a tree skirt for your Christmas Tree?
What cute bracelets they make.
What about a wreath? Cute idea.
I don't know about you but I'm so inspired and would love to start a stash of ties (as if I need to start another collection of anything around here). People are so creative. Have you done any re-purposing with ties? Would love to see your handi-work.
