I made these business/credit/gift card holders from second-hand neckties. I *love* shopping for second-hand neckties :)

I like both styles. My husband for some reason inherits all the ties in his family that no one else wants . . . this is going to help me out there, too! would like to have instructions if you have a chance. Thanks

loscann writes: Hi Joan! Thanks :) I've made wrist cuffs using the skinny end of the tie, and I've also used scraps and button covers to make little magnets. Do you visit flickr? There are lots of ideas in the Sewing with neckties group http://www.flickr.com/groups/34628626@N00/
