Turning a tie into a headband.

It all started when my dad went through his closet and decided he didn't want these ties:
So I folded the tie into a square on the fat end.
 I then cut off the extra piece of the tie.
 Sewed down the extra fabric.
 Wrapped thread around the center to shape it into a bow.
I cut off skinny end of the tie,
Then wrapped it to hide the thread.
 I used the rest of the tie as the headband and glued velcro to the ends.
And done!

For any of you ladies who have boyfriends of husbands that want a bow tie,
you could totally make one for them :)
