I am obsessed with neckties. I love to loop one in the belt loops of my jeans. I've always wanted to make a skirt out of them...haven't quite finished that project yet.

I've found the best way to obtain a lot of neckties for not a lot of money is through e-bay. I have a collection (2 storage bins) of neckties! All waiting to be crafted into something special.

For this project, I used three neckties from my collection and turned them into a unique scarf.

I hope you like this project and definitely let me know if you try it. I'd like to see pics! :)

Step 1: Materials

3 neckties (try to pick 3 neck ties that are close to the same length)
Seam ripper
Pins (sewing, quilting, stray…)
Fleece (if you buy 1 yard or 1/2 yard you should have plenty, you’ll being using approximately 13” by 5’ depending on the neckties you use)
Sewing machine
Hand sewing needle
Embroidery floss to match the neckties (may need more than one color)
Cutting mat
Rotary cutter
Ironing board

I think mine turned out good, gonna make some more a bit narrower
