This purse was made totally different but again, is scraps left over from making the skirt. ( I really do hate to throw anything away)
In this one, I constructed it by laying the ties wide end to thin end and zig zagged them together. I did not put them right sides together, just zig zagged them side by side. the look is soo much different than the other style. I folded the scraps in half and added the wide end only of two ties cut to length on the sides as a gusset of sorts. After sewing on those wide ends , all there was to do was add the handles which are the thin ends of ties cut to the size I wanted.

thank you!

Thanks paintingnut, I appreciate you adding the photos, I can easily understand how the second one is done but I need to get a few of my dh ties out and try to piece together the first one you explained. That one is a little harder for me to read and visualize it how it is sewn together even with your beautiful finished purses. Thanks again.

Did you happen to go to garage sales or goodwills to get the ties or did you purchase them somewhere? I've found ties can be very expensive.

I am making homemade "Peanut Butter Buckets" for everyone this year. I have made them in the past, but never shared because my family eats them before they are even cooled!

It's like making a peanut butter cup. but you use a rubber spatula to smear the chocolate into muffin cups, and then spoon in a mixture of peanut butter, butter and confectioner's sugar, and pour more chocolate over top. Simple enough, but SOOO rich and disgusting! I was going to make milk, dark and white chocolate ones, and drizzle patterns on top like they do with expensive truffles.

our local goodwill store bags up the ties and sells them for 3.99 a bag, there are usually over a hundred funky ties per bag.

I like the smaller handbag style purse you made. I do not know how to sew but I do appreciate the work people put into their work. I still say it is such a unique idea
