What to do With Old Ties

A few years ago my sister's husband passed away. He took great pride in the ties he wore. I asked her to give them to me knowing someday I would come up with something. I always thought I would make a quilt out of them but could never decide on a pattern. Then she downsized and had no need for a big quilt. I made her this pillow.

I wanted you to see the back of the pillow.  These are buttons from my grandma's stash.

  1. What a great idea! I too have a sister who lost her husband, she would love this. Did you stabilise the tie fabric in some way or just sew them as they are??
