Last week I received two more boxes from my cousins full of fabric, clothes and other family items from my great aunt. These boxes contained a very big surprise - 197 1970's wide polyester neck ties! At first I thought "what the heck am I gonna do with a 197 funky neck ties!" Ruby had an idea that they might make a nice bed...
I've been interested in making a floor quilt and I had heard about making rugs from these things so I trusted my fate to the googles and typed in "neck tie rugs" and found a lot of really fun ideas. It seemed like the typical method was to connect them with a zig zag stitch. I've been having lots of fun working on this! Here are some picture of them coming together...
|The center is now complete and I love it, I think I like it better all by itself than the center of the big rug. What to do, what to do?|
It's been fun to see these old styles again. I feel like I'm lost in episodes of Kojak and Barney Miller!
Hope everyone is having a great day!
Until our corners meet again,
