18: Neck Ties and Dress Shirts: Creative Reuse Ideas for Father’s Day

Dress shirts and neck ties used to be every-day wear – until casual Friday became casual every-day. Now a lot of formal work attire needs to be re-made into something more useful.

In episode 18 of the Trashmagination podcast, get inspired this Father’s Day to remove an under-utilized tie from the closet and make it into something more fun.

Check out the butterflies I sewed from neck ties!
