    I was at a quilting tea and saw a small purse that was made from one tie only. I was told the tie was cut and reassembled to make a small purse with a flap.

    I haven't been able to find the pattern for it. Does this pattern sound familiar to anyone?

    Thanks!

    Unfortunately she had misplaced the pattern in her files and hasn't been able to locate it. She wasn't hopeful about finding it. I've looked online, but have only found patterns of purses made with multiple ties.

    I've been looking around the Internet with "one tie" in the search (before I search silk tie purse) and have found some interesting ideas.

    Again, thank for your time.

    This looks very similar to the one I saw. I've saved the pattern. Thank you very much for sharing!

    Here it is almost 4 years later and I can't find a pattern either. There is no actual "pattern" just directions on cutting the tie. Has anyone out there find an actual pattern or video on this? Thanks.

    I feel like I'm in the WayBack machine! Four years!

    As a matter of fact I did find a written pattern--just the cut out, but I recently moved and everything is in storage. I had hoped my sewing room would have been put in one storage unit, but alas..... as soon as I find it, I can share it. In the mean time I did find these links (some of the links above no longer work):

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TZ9c4hNgNMU This looks really close to the pattern I was looking for.

    https://www.pinterest.com/explore/necktie-purse/ great ideas! Check out the quilt pattern while you're there. It was posted at the QB from a Fons and Porter magazine. :0)

    I hope this gets your creative juices flowing.....

    http://nebraskaviews.blogspot.ca/201...-tutorial.html The strap on this bag was on the original pattern from my initial thread. Check out the use of the double points for the flap.
