Lyndia....Google it and watch some of the videos. The pictures of the aprons are really cute. I have never seen this craft but have seen others with mens ties. Hope you find what you need!
Lyndia: Maybe this will help
You can open them up and iron them out. Then make a pattern by flipping them ?
I know I will be aging myself but I made a really cute skirt out of men's ties in the 60's - ha ha
Yeh, when ties were wide, and waists were narrow.........sigh..........
