#468: Tie Tips and Tuffets

I have the best friends.
I’m always needing neckties for my chairs
and they’re always providing them:
These were handed to me at church.

Gasoline pump tie.
There is nothing so obscure that it hasn’t been put on a tie.
The straps are perfect for weaving,
But what to do with all the tips?
How about this:
Tuffet top,
this used up about two hundred tips.

I’m still figuring out how to do the sides
and whether or not to put the feet back on.
If it has feet, it’s not a tuffet but an ottoman.
And tie tip tuffet has such a delicious alliteration.
