Anne Ward and Diane Tobin, of our Bag Lady group, have been making Tie Bags for the last couple of years. Tie Bags are made from one man’s entire tie. The tie is pieced, lined with muslin and has a lovely complementary lining. A twisted cord strap in a coordinating colour and a brooch/pin as an embellishment (or not) complete the bag. We have had requests to make Memento/Memorial Tie Bags and are now able to offer the opportunity to those inside and outside our group. The only requirement is that the tie be a standard size, not a narrow tie.
The Tie Bag costs $20 and you may provide a personal pin to go on the flap or not, it works both ways.
Please contact Anne, ian.anne.ward.@shaw.ca or Diane, firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information.
