Woven Necktie Bag

My girlfriend Barb over at The Purse Project introduces and hosts various purse-making challenges and I enjoy seeing what everyone creates. The current challenge is to make a bag from neckties....

I thought I was finished with the neckties, but how could I resist - especially when Barb considers me an "inspiration!?"

So, for something new, I tried weaving neckties for this basket-shaped bag. It was not entirely successful and if I ever made another one I would do it a little differently, but it was fun to get the ties out again.

Thanks Barb!


  1. OMG. OMG. I LOVE this Laura! Love it so much! Thank you!

  3. Hi, I love your purse. It is so interesting. Wish I knew how to make one.
