I love being part of a small group of artists – you get to know the people much better than attending a formal meeting. You can actually talk to each other and get to know the work. One of the women was cutting up silk ties. Why, I asked?
She cuts them into strips for bias binding. What a smart idea. They are useful for clothing, which she makes herself – beautifully, or for quilts.
Surfing the internet found me this tutorial from the Instructables website – Re-purposing men’s ties into bias tape..
Silk ties are easy to find. Raid your husband’s stash, which he doesn’t use any more. Explore thrift stores – piles to chose from.
What a good idea.
