Transform lame, unwanted gifts to Chic BoHo Beauties!
Transform old gifts to Dad or hubby, or outrageous finds from the local thrift and Goodwill...this is so easy! All you need is thread and a zig zag stitch on your sewing machine, and a spare 10 mins! Also working on a tie skirt, could easily stitch together ties to make an apron, or what about a legacy quilt ala Gees Bend of a beloved family member? I'm sure this idea has been done before, its fun and easy, I however did not know of any when I started messing around with my mans box of unwanted ties. If you see any others- link them here :)
