Wonderful! Do you know where to purchase tie fabric that is not solid?

Thanks, everyone! Connie, you're right, it IS a great way to save money -- all four ties cost less than $5! Diane -- look for any place that sells printed silk or rayon or silk or rayon blends. I searched and found www.manhattanfabrics.com. They have more printed silks and rayon than I've seen anywhere else. The silks are $18+ per yard, but if you get two ties from it (if the fabric is 50+ inches wide), it's not bad. Where do you live? Honestly, what I would do is, the next time you go through a big town like Dallas, LA, New York, etc., go to the fabric district and stock up. If you're looking for something in the meantime, I think the printed polyesters like the ones they carry at JoAnn's would work fine, and they're super cheap. Some of the "simply silky" prints are pretty girley, but there are others that aren't too bad. I've never looked for printed silks at Joann's before, but I'm planning on looking the next time I go.

I have found great silk tie fabric at Haberman's in the Detroit area, Fabrications in Richland, MI and Vogue in the Chicago area. All three have web sites, although Haberman's does not show much of the fabric they carry. These stores have the real deal. Silk that is intended to be made into ties. This fabric has such vibrant colors, I purchased some to use for other things as well, like piping or lining.
