My version of the necktie purse (original at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pBCaNNxKi9s ). I made my lining with several pockets (not included in original) Ended up with enough tie pieces left over to make an evening clutch.
Baa Baa Zuzu is a company in Michigan that buys wool outerwear from local thrift stores that haven't been sold and are on their way to the trash. They then take the wool pieces, cut them up and hand stitch them into brand new vests, jackets, scarves, bags, mittens and Christmas stockings -- to just name a few of the many items they produce. Each piece is a unique work of art in itself, with no two items that look alike.
