Hand-woven necktie chair/rocker. Could use this idea to reweave g-g-father's chair or my porch rocker. Maybe with heavy canvas or denim though.

I'll help!! Just give me enough lead time...I even have a sewing machine!
Wow, I didn't know you could comment on here. I LOVE that idea!!!

Missionary tie quilt. I remember making a Tie quilt with my grandmother. It was fun (as well as a pain in the butt) to remove the stuffing out of each tie.

Love this design
