Works for Me Wednesday- A craft for extra men's neck ties

This is my first WFMW post at its new home over at We are THAT Family so I'm very excited about that!

A couple of weeks ago, I reconnected with an old friend of mine on Facebook. She was in the middle of big sewing projected. Her father-in-law, had recently passed away. He had been a business man and when he passed he left behind many really nice neckties. My friend, Brenda, wanted to do something to honor his memory and give something beautiful to those who loved him, and so she created these beautiful pillows made out of his left over neck ties.

First she made a basic pillow. Then she used the ties to make the cover over the pillow. They are gorgeous!

This would be a good sewing project for new sewers, and maybe a good group project for homeschoolers.

Works for Me!
