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

Picture of 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)
Thread
Sewing machine
Hand sewing needle
Embroidery floss to match the neckties (may need more than one color)
Scissors
Cutting mat
Rotary cutter
Iron
Ironing board

Step 2: Take your ties apart

Once you have obtained/gathered your materials, you are ready to start construction.

Put the necktie face down. Use the seam ripper to remove the seam that’s running down the back center of the tie. Remove any material from within the tie, such as gauze, that was originally assembled to make the tie stiff. There is no need to remove the nylon material.

Step 3:

Lay your ties out on a table. Match the widest ends of the neckties together and pin. Use the creases in the neckties for guidance. Before pinning the rest of the ties, go to the center of the tie and determine how narrow you want the scarf to be at its narrowest point and pin the ties. For this project it is best to use your pins as a seam marker. Evenly pin the ties together working your way to the front points and to the other end of the ties.
