I found this AWESOME men's necktie at Goodwill and had to have it.
Sorry about the colors, not sure why one seems darker. Anyway, I knew I would be able to make SOMETHING from this fabulous tie.
The first thing I did was take some really sharp scissors and split the tie up the back seam. The tie opened up to a pretty good sized piece of fabric.
I forgot to take pictures of the sunflower tie so I had another one that I'll show how to
open up. Start with a pair of sharp, small scissors.
You will see the flexible stabilizer hidden inside the tie. Keep snipping all the way up the back seam.
Taaa Daaa!!I separated the inner part from the cute yellow fabric.
Next you have to take off the white part from both ends of the fabric.
Again, use sharp scissors and go slowly.
Finally I ironed the fabric and you will see that there is big piece of fabric that can be recycled.
My camera fits perfectly in the new case! Love it.
There is even enough room for my accessories in the case.
Can't wait to try this type of project again.
Thanks for looking.
