I had the opportunity to create necktie clutch bags before Christmas last year for two different clients. I typically use four or five ties for each side. There’s usually enough fabric to get two clutch bags out of four ties, but I can work with more. The two sides can be similar or could be made with completely different ties.
In this example, my client wanted a tie and fabric from a dress shirt to be used. She also had a flannel shirt and I think that came out just lovely.
