Silk tie bucket purse

I checked out this book from the library last week and knew I had to make a tie bag.

I had these ties stashed away knowing someday I'd use them.

It took me a couple of hours to put together. I broke a needle on my machine as well in the process. First time I've ever done that!

I learned that I had to manually "walk" the stitching forward by turning it by hand through the thick areas. Such technically accurate terms huh?! I am a trial and error girl. I don't follow directions well. This may be an issue in my quest to learn to knit...

Your recycling efforts put mine to shame. I have a bunch of old ties, but would NEVER think of running them through my machine. I'm glad you took the chance, because this is a wonderful addition to your purse collection. And all that pink wasn't lost on me, either. You find pink in everything!
