    Necktie Lollapalooza

    It's been a while since my last post. Still making quilts and other things, and looking at posts. There are a lot of pretty things being posted

    I have been collecting necktie since my father passed away in 1991. I now feel like I have enough for a quilt or two. First I made a handbag to get a feel of what it is like to work with neckties. I finished this today. The pattern is Lollapalozza by Studio Kat Design. I use 6 neckties for this handbag. It makes into large handbag. I am happy with it. Hope you like it too!

    I do love it! Can't wait to see the quilt you make with all the other ties!
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    Beautiful bag, well done Love your fur baby spying on you.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    Very pretty bag. I like the doggie peeking around the corner too!!! I still have my dad's neckties too-not real sure what to do with them and he passed away many years ago. Maybe someday I will get an idea buy I enjoy looking at your bag you made.

    Great idea!! I have made 3 wall hangings out of my beloved (me & for my DD & DS). (Pic is 1st I made-can't load). I gave to them this Christmas & they were soooo moved... My DD said she cried (he's been gone 13 yrs)..
    Have also made 1 for a widow at my church (her hubby was an elder for many yrs). Have enough to make 4 more for her kids...

    I like the peek-a-boo dog. The purse is really neat too. Thanks for adding the name of the pattern. So often people make something neat and everyone asks what pattern they used and never get a reply.
