I have 50 of my dad's ties and want to make 5 different "small memento things" for my mom and sisters. I think I know what I'm going to make (dresden pillow and hangings, crazy quilt hanging, and victorian box), and I have found several good tutorials, but I'd like general input from the geniuses on this board. I've never worked with silk before - should I interface? --- and do you go all the way to the edge, which would be much easier. Any advice out there? Please help.
