I received a bright yellow and red stripped tie. There are no rules for this challenge, so this is what I designed.
I crazy quilted the red/yellow tie with more pieces of old ties on to a rectangle of canvas. I ,then, collaged the front with squares of text paper,paint, and packaging that was included in the current Front Porch Kit, Sew Artsy.
I need to do more stitching and beading to complete my book.
Here are some other things I have designed before using old men's ties.
All of the Front Porch Design Team will be posting their creative use of the TACKY TIES.Be sure to follow all of the team's blogs. If you haven't joined the challenge, pick up a tie tomorrow at
