Last 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.
