In one of my recent blog searches I spied a great tutorial on how to make a Neck Tie Necklace by Tip Junkie. I loved the idea, but chose to add it to a T rather than use it as a necklace.
Here is my version.
This is a Pamela's Pattern T. I recently took her workshop and really loved the fit of her pattern. I only had to make a few alterations. I added a back seam and took up the back neck.
These pictures don't do the up cycled Tie necklace justice. The T is dark navy blue and the tie is a preppy navy and green. She used a button on her necklace, but I wanted to use a pin so I could change it to suit my mood! I tacked the tie around the neck in strategic places rather than sewing it down all around the neck so it would stretch over my head.
