How to make


You will also need:

Coloured fat quarters of your choice 



All sewn edges use a 10mm seam allowance.

Step 1

Cut a piece of scrap fabric 45x10cm. Fold in half, right sides together, lengthways and use your machine to sew a straight line down the long raw edge, leave a gap at one end.

Step 2

Using a Safety pin to feed the ‘non gap’ end inside the tube, pull it to the other open short end (with the gap).

Step 3

Line up the short raw tube ends together. Use a needle and thread to do a small, neat running stitch around in a loop roughly 1cm, from the raw edges.

Step 4

Pull the whole tube through the gap, you should now have a ring of fabric pulled the right way around.

Elastic and Fabric

Step 5

Cut a piece of elastic to 20cm. Use the safety pin to feed the elastic through the ring (through the open gap) take care not to loose the other end.

Join the elastic ends together with your sewing machine. Then use your needle and thread to sew up the gap using a slip stitch or use your machine close to the edge.
