    How cool is that? I saw on Craigslist someone had a whole big box of ties for sale. I wondered what I would do with them and thought no, I don't need one more thing sitting around my house. Never would have thought to use them like you have!

    Very cute! But don't they stretch since ties are made on the bias and so is the stabilizer in them? I used to make ties for my husband once upon a time.

    Very nice.
    I have a chair just like that one but mine has NO seat. I love it. I may have to try something like that.

    That is fantastic. But you don't actually sit on it do you?

    I have a chair my Papa made himself. He was a carpenter and carved the wooden parts by hand. I'll be looking for ties from now on to cover the seat.

    The way I do mine is to sew the ties together making one long string after cutting off the wide ends. and it only takes 21 ties . After I get my ties ready I will post pic showing each step. So get your chair and ties ready.

    Most of the ties were given to me and I got a lot at thrift stores.
