I've had a great time seeing the variety of neck ties that people send me to convert into bow ties. The order that I popped into the mail today was by far the most interesting (and difficult) batch of ties that I converted yet. I can tell that the gentleman that owned these ties has used and loved them dearly and it makes me so happy that he'll be able to wear them again! He sent me 5 ties to be converted: Squirrels, Cheetas, and Swans belted together (one of his wife's favorites), Bunnies in hats and a vintage J.Press Paisley tie.
I felt like I was putting together a puzzle working around all of the love on these ties. When I finished them up this afternoon, I felt pretty proud of myself. I even was able to salvage the vintage label and sew it back into the bow (his request). I wish I would have taken better pictures, but here's what I've got. Maybe I'll see if he can send me some shots of himself wearing them.
Also on the agenda for this evening: a frog tie and a bear tie. I have such a fun job.
If you have an interest in having your ties converted, know that the charge is $23 for each tie. You can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
