Craft Challenge

Make a Glasses case from an old tie.

  1. Lay the necktie flat with the back side facing up.
  2. First of all measure and mark 43cm in from the tip, then cut the tie width-wise.
  3. Discard the narrow end of the tie. Then use a seam ripper to open the seam along the back of the tie 15-18cm to create a pouch.
  4. Measure 20cm in from the cut end and mark. Fold the tie at the mark toward the pointed tip and tuck under 1.3cm of cut edge and pin.
  5. Using small whip stitches along the top and sides, hand-sew the folded-over portion of tie to only the top layer of fabric beneath it.
  6. Hand-stitch along the top and sides, securing the folded-over portion of tie to the top layer of fabric beneath it.
  7. Fold the tip of the tie over to make a flap.
  8. Finish by affixing a set of self-adhesive Velcro dots to keep the case closed.
