Default I enjoy using men's ties for sewing and crafts.

I really save money by using men's ties for sewing and crafts. The
recycled ones are very inexpensive source of quality material for
trim. The fabrics used in ties are so beautiful! That's a source of
fine trim that many people have never given any thought to, and
they're certainly a lot more beautiful than any commercial bias trims
I've ever seen!

Also, I use men's ties to make the covered buttons. When using a
small-scale print, center the motif on the button. I added the
instructions about how to make the covered buttons to my Tips& Pattern
page on my site.

pure silk man's tie. Creating a Wearable Art exhibit "Birds at
Sunset". You can see it he
