I took them out today and looked over them to see if I could decide what to do with them. It didn't take me long to realize that they would make some fabulous headbands!
You will need:
thread and needle
an old tie
Cut the bottom part off of the tie. Since the tie tappers on one end and gets wider on the other I cut out a middle piece so that it was more or less even. Measure and cut what you need. I used the sophisticated measuring technique of wrapping it around my head to see how much I needed.
Take the bottom part of the tie take out the stitching, and remove the liner. You are going to use the bottom part to make the flowers. You can either cut your own version free hand or head over to Wise Craft and read her great tutorial. Then you can use this great template like I did.
Take the top part of the tie and fold over and sew the ends. Then add a small piece of elastic between them so it looks like this.
Once you finish you can attach your pretty flower you made.
Now go and admire you beautiful new headband in the mirror. Mine was instantly taken and worn by someone...
