Necktie Owls

These little critters are hand stitched. They are little owl brooches made from mens neckties. There is always an abundance of mens neckties in op shops, some of which have beautiful fabric, so what better way to use upcycle them into cute little necktie owls!

Necktie owls are versatile little creatures, as well as brooches, they can also be pinned to bags, sewn onto baby blankets, gift cards, etc.

The idea is from Ally over at Harrys Desk

I am giving away three sets of mummy and baby owlets on my other blog Recycled Fashion if anyone is interested.

Three little owl sets need new homes

And Ally is giving away necktie owl tutorials on her blog if you would like to learn how to make your very own cute little necktie owls.


  1. I absolutely adore these owls...do you sell anything on Etsy? =)
