It’s a Lovely Way to Preserve Memories!
This beautiful bag is a wonderful way to put old ties to good use and at the same time honor the loved one who wore them. You can also use ties from the thrift store for a charming conversation piece that is sure to attract attention.
Start with two ties in coordinating colors that can be pressed open with no signs of wear along the folds. Layer one on top of the other for the flap of the bag and use the rest of the ties to form the body.
Any color theme will be great so have fun making your own unique version.
The finished purse, designed by Martha Major from Martha’s Market, is 8.5″ x 7″.
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!
