Red Carnation by Sara Y

For this week's project I used 41 different ties and made an envelope case for a 16 by 16 pillow form. 20170305_123136On the back the wide end of the ties are used for the opening of the envelope. 20170305_123122On the front the ties radiate from the center with,  of course, a red carnation right in the middle.  20170305_123011No truly well dressed man would never leave home without a red carnation.20170305_123443

I used quilting, sewing and handwork for the flower techniques for this project. 20170305_123450I've been collecting ties for a number of years and am glad to finally have an opportunity to use some of them.

  2. A nice variety of ties. The carnation looks lovely
