If you're looking for a way to give new life to those old, outdated ties of yours, design blog Design mum shows us how to re-tailor them into skinny ties at home.
You'll need some sewing skills for this, of course, but nothing too extreme. It's a fairly easy process: just unstitch the tie, cut down the piece of paper that gives the tie shape, and then re-sew it all together (and make sure it looks symmetrical). All you really need is a needle and thread, some scissors, and an iron, and it should work with ties of any fabric.
