| Never pass by a display of ties in a charity shop, and ask all male friends for their discards! This is why:
1. Covered buttons.
2. Rouleaux loops.
3. Waistband facings.
4. Bias to add a binding or covered piping detail wherever you choose - eg. necklines, armholes, pockets, bags.
5. Outline an exposed zip.
6. Flower corsage.
7. Hanging loop at the neck of jacket or coat.
8. Rouleaux to plait together for a belt/bag handle.
10. Piece for a flash of colour/pattern on cuffs, collars, accessories - See Marcy Tilton's patterns for ideas.
