Upcycled Necktie Scarf – Silk Nautical Theme
A scarf made with vintage neckties: silk, nautical theme. Wearable art.
This scarf was made by sewing two vintage neckties together, creating an artsy scarf. Both are labeled silk from Korea and have nautical themes. The sailboat one has a label for Palm Tropics. The lighter one has a sailboat theme and the darker one, a lighthouse theme with seagulls flying.
I added a blue yo-yos, also made of neck tie fabric, attached by embroidering.
A friend of mine was moving and called all of us fiber artists over to snap up her stash of supplies. She had a barrel full of neckties and told us that whatever was left was going into the dumpster, so I grabbed a bunch. Couldn’t have that happen!
I had a lot of fun making these bold accessories (I made several). I think of this as something similar you would see in some countries, where a textile is draped for effect, more than for function.
