well, i couldnt just leave the rest of the tie alone. i dont think i will ever use the fatty end, so i used the rest of the middle.
i figured out how much tie it would take to go around my head. then i got some elastic that was laying around and shoved it in between the layers of tie.
and sewed it a million times back and forth.
and now i have a cute headband AND a bracelet for a total of $1.15!
