Has anyone seen or made these? If so, any hints or suggestions would be great.

My DDs (15 & 12) took sewing lessons last week and used neckties on the purse project they made. Very cute purses, but now they're wanting to make skirts using neckties. We went to a couple of thrift stores yesterday (scored 26 from one @ .50/ea & got 4 from another for $2/ea).

Did you find any instructions? I have been collecting info from the internet and would be happy to forward anything I have to you. I'm planning to make a purse with neckties.

No pattern, but boy, do we have LOTS of ties! My oldest made lots of skirts for her friends, both guys & girls.
