The Silk Necktie Purse

STP step 12Last Spring, I visited the Quilting Guild of Indianapolis and some of the ladies were showing off their sweet little purses that they had constructed from a silk necktie.  A very kind lady, Nancy Jo Clapp, had acquired the pattern from a friend in Florida and was sharing it with those who asked. She gave me permission to post the directions on my website, where you will find a picture tutorial and pattern by clicking on the teaching button.

I want to thank the many members of the Morgan County Schoolhouse Quilters Guild who came together for a complimentary workshop and reviewed my written directions while making the purse. Since I am not a pattern writer, their input was invaluable. Thank you guild members.

    These are so cute! They should come with a warning, “You can’t make just one!” I have made two trips to Goodwill to purchase ties–I have found some whimsical ones as well as ones that will work for dressy occasions. They are great for any age. My granddaughters love them too!

    how do I get this pattern. Someone gave my mother one of these and she would like to make some to use as gifts.
