Cool Ties



A couple of weeks ago I got out my sewing machine and decided to make a cool tie. These have been on my list to make for sometime and since it has been so hot, I decided it was the perfect time to make one.

My sewing machine and I are often times at odds, but I was able to complete this little project in about an hour. I made this particular cool tie for my best friend Sue for her birthday.

I think it came out pretty well.


Not sure what a cool tie is? It a tie made out of fabric filled with polymer crystals that when soaked in water for a couple of minutes absorb the water. You place the cool tie around your neck tied in the front with the crystals against the back of your neck and it helps to cool you down on these hot summer days. Here in NJ we have had over a week of hot and humid weather!

I am considering selling them what do you think? Is this an item you would consider purchasing?
