Ties usually have diagonal stripes, rather than horizontal or vertical ones, because ties are cut on the bias.

Making Stuff

My dad and I had dinner Thursday night, and he mentioned an idea for a birthday present–his birthday is on the 22nd, a date I could never remember until (and this is rather sad) I realized it was the same as Bilbo and Frodo Baggins.

Seems my dad hardly ever wears a tie anymore, but he does wear hats.  So I’m going to take a number of his ties and make them into hatbands.  Should be an interesting project.
