Vary the Width by Selecting Narrow or Wide Ties!
Use a man’s tie to make a quick and handy carrying case. Depending on the width of the tie, it can be used for a cell phone, sewing notions, and even for small scissors (tuck batting in the bottom to protect against the scissor points).
“A case made from a necktie can hold an item about 4″ to 6″ in length. But how wide an item? Ah, that totally depends on the width of the tie. The wider the tie, the wider the item it can hold.”
Check your favorite guy’s closet for an old tie. Or, you’re sure to find attractive ties to choose from at thrift stores and garage sales.
Once you have a tie, this is a quick and super easy project to complete. The tutorial is from First Light Designs.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
