    I thought I'd try making one for myself; I have some experience in sewing (from high school and college ..... don't ask ..... ). Hey, it could be a good Sunday passtime!

    Tried to search for how to fold/make a 7 fold and found several related articles on carlofranco.com, samhober.com and others. But, I didn't find anything specifying on how the ties are folded. The double-4-fold seems "simple" enough.

    Does anyone know more about true 7-folds apart from "it is made from a whole square yard and folded 3 times from one side and 4 times from the other" or "you can tell a 7-fold from its assymetrical folds"?

    It is supposed to be simple and I even tried to experiment on a square piece of paper but can't figure out how to fold it seven times into the shape of a tie and leave the tie thickness even thoughout.[​IMG]
