Necktie Clutch and Headband

IMG_0839[1]

We were at the dollar store looking for craftsperation when I noticed they had neckties. I have seen a few tutorials on necktie scarfs but I wanted to try something different. So I went with a clutch and headband.

You will need:

  • Necktie
  • Sewing machine or needle and thread
  • Elastic
  • Velcro
  • Button (optional)

and a lovely model.

Cut 15 inches off the smaller end for the strap. Cut 18 inches off of the larger end of the tie for the main part of the bag. Keep the leftovers for your headband.

Now we are off to the sewing machine. Take the larger part of the tie where it has been cut and fold it over 2 times (not the end with the point)

Cut your Velcro into a 1 inch or smaller piece. You can also add a button or clasp here but for Echo I wanted it to be easy. Sew the Velcro to the inside of the pointed part of the tie.

Fold up the bottom part and sew the other piece of velcro to the outside of the tie. Then place your strap inside and sew down the sides. Leaving the top open.

I hot glued a button to the outside. You can use anything to dress it up.

Next I started on the headband. Take both ends and fold them under twice and sew. Measure the size of the head that will be wearing the headband. Take the measurement of your tie piece and subtract it from your head measurement and what you have left will be the amount of elastic you need minus 1 inch.
