This week's tutorial is a tiny bit late. I was stuck out of town for work in a snow storm. Ahhh, the joy's of winter in Saskatchewan~
Anyway, on with the show... any time you see me there are two things I can pretty much guarantee I'll have on me....a scarf of some sort, and at least one tube of lip gloss. (The last time I checked my purse I had no less than 10 in there, so silly, I know, but it's just one of those things~)
This project is beyond easy but a great little addition to your closet.
Here's what you need:
-cotton fabric/muslin (approximately 37" or .95 m)
-wide lace ( I used stretch but it can just be regular flat lace)
-standard sewing kit
1) I picked up this fabric from an old first aid kit that was about to be thrown out. The piece of muslin is for making a sling so that's why it's shaped into a triangle.
I decided not to alter it or cut it into a strip. The extra cloth gives it more body and something to play with.
2) At the last minute (after ironing the fabric) I decided to do a rolled hem on the two raw edges. If you like raw edges you can just leave it as is, many of you know that's a pet peeve of mine though, so I couldn't leave them. I went with contrasting thread but you could just zigzag or turn your edges over and use a matching thread if you prefer.
3) See how it's folded over up there? Keep that in mind and add a strip of lace between that gap. My lace is about 15" long (around 6" wide for you perfectionists out there). Pin it down, cut off the end, and sew down the edges. (I added a rolled hem on the lace edges before I sewed it down.)
That's really all there is to it. See? Beyond simple.
For those of you who follow me on Facebook this is the haircut that I mentioned earlier in the week. I didn't go for the platinum blonde pixie cut but I did cut off about 6-8". Now I can grow it out again I guess~
