Scrap Crafty~ neck tie choker

I picked up a very slim neck tie a few weeks ago at a thrift store. I think it was meant for a young man or maybe a ska rude boy type. Who knows, but it worked perfectly for my new idea. I like how the fabric matches my glasses so well.. It's just so nice when an outfit comes together!


very easy construction....wrap the end piece of the tie around your neck, skip with scissors a little bit longer than you want it to be, use fabric glue to form point on snipped end, mark button hole, make said button hole, sew on button! Now, go sport your new sassy handmade cuteness of a choker!
ps. if you make one let me know, i'd love to see a pic!
