Taking recycling just a big step forward.
At a recent Braidwood Quilters workshop mundane and positively ghastly men’s ties were turned into very fashionable ladies shoulder bags. With careful cutting a bag can be made from one tie.The only additional requirements are a length of material for the lining, a chain, cord of ribbon for the shoulder strap and a fancy button to dress the tag.
The pictures show an almost completed bag and some of the quilters preparing the ties.
Fun was had by all turning ordinary ties into something useful.
Up-cycling at its best.
