I found this tutorial over at familycrafts.about.com on how to turn an old necktie into a cell phone holder, coin purse or Ipod holder.
I tried my hand at this and I think it turned out O.K. The necktie was one I found at the goodwill and was thinking of my niece because she loves giraffes. Thankfully I found this project and I think she will like it.
Instead of using Velcro I used a snap for the closure. I had so many of them that I figured I would use what I have instead of buying something I didn’t. I think it looks cute. I am not sure how strong the snap will be but it did add some nice decor to the front.
