Kelly's Necktie Skirt Posted by Hello

Kelly's Necktie Skirt

When Kelly arrived to spend the Thanksgiving weekend with our family her destiny was already sealed.... Of course she was going to make a skirt - no question. She chose mostly blues. Didn't it turn out cute? She figures her sister is going to want it - or maybe steal it - so she immediately started a second one. It's almost done!

Heather knows she looks great in her necktie skirt - oh yeah!!!! Posted by Hello

Happy Thanksgiving to All!

I'm so happy to have my brother, Brad , his wife Heather, and their daughter, Alexandria visiting for Thanksgiving! They have recently moved to Arizona and it is so nice to have family here. Alex and I made this skirt for Heather about a year ago. Doesn't it look great?!?!?

Necktie Corset Belt

Oh yeah! After making the necktie hats from the ends of the 70's ties - I knew I had to do something with the remaining sections. So.... I started a bag - I'll finish it eventually - and then got distracted by THIS idea! A necktie corset belt. It turned out pretty well, so I made three more. I know I'm obsessed!

Necktie Hat Posted by Hello

Necktie Madness

Yes, I'm afraid it's gone too far this time. I found myself obsessed with working out the details of this hat. First - it's made with hideous 1970's wide ties. Second, it's topped with a ridiculous button (can the propeller be far behind?) And finally - my DD actually agreed to wear it. Enjoy!
