The necktie is perhaps one of the most varied sources of interesting and unusual fabrics. Though some are notoriously ugly, many are good-looking, even stunning. They can often be had for very little money at thrift shops and yard sales--or for free right out of the back of the closet when their owner is tired of them. Noted crafter Shirley Botsford has transformed these variegated strips of silk, wool, cotton, and even polyester into a variety of items. The more than 30 projects include quilts, scarves, purses, vests, lampshades, pillows, covered boxes, Christmas stockings, and stuffed animals. From finding old ties and taking them apart to the step-by-steps of transforming them into all sorts of colorful objects,Daddy's Ties is full of charming ideas.
The ultimate recycling craft that, if done well, actually doesn't look like a recycling effort. Designer Botsford, inspired by the memory of her late father's ties, shows a passel of ways to use neck gear, from simple scarves to a complicated three-piece woman's suit. Her more than 30 designs include pouf purse, head gear, a teddy bear, Christmas ornaments, lamp shades, and, of course, the ubiquitous pillows and quilts. Instructions are clear (though somewhat telescoped in terms of space); color photographs showcase the finished objects. Barbara Jacobs
