With all these neckties I have inherited I've had fun finding ways to use them up. Neckties are so long that you really have two ties in one, a big end and a little end. I have cut off the little end to the "right" length for the dog and then added an inch or so to account for the distance around the collar. I then just zig- zagged across and put in a couple of darts on either side to make it look like it has been knotted. Super easy, quick and fun! What else can I make with almost 200 vintage neckties?
