My daughter recently purchase a bracelet that was made from a man’s tie. Her’s had a leather buckle on it, but it also had a price tag of $55.00
My son moved to CO this summer and brought me all the items he didn’t have room for in his car. Among those items were loads of neckties.
I thought I would try my hand at making one of these bracelets. I really have to say that this may have been the hardest step, deciding which button to put on the bracelet. Oh yea, I really, really, really do hate to make button holes. I read some blogs on how to make a tie bracelet, but I choose the simple route. I just measured my daughter’s wrist and added @ 2 1/2″ to that measurement. I used the skinny part of the tie, you know, the part you never see. I turned raw edges in and slip-stitched the opening closed. I then put in a button-hole and sewed on the button. How fast was that. You could really make a few bracelets from the same tie. I think I will try to make the little wristlets I have seen on Pinterest from the rest of the tie. My New Year’s Resolution is to try some more of those “pins” and report on how they work out. I really didn’t take very detailed pictures of this bracelet, but my nieces have picked out ties and I will get busy on those bracelets and post the results. Have fun with this. It would be a great way to use a tie from a special occasion or maybe one of your dad’s. What a sweet memory!
