I should definitely tidy more often. Every time I have a clear out I seem to find something fantastic I forgot I had. Thanks to my old work colleagues I acquired a few bags of forgotten treasures to rummage through last weekend and came across this fantastic fabric. I have had it for years and never found a use for it, so it seems like fate that a Royal Orchid and Emerald Green plaid piece of fabric would just land in my lap right now. I knew I had to use it!
1. Cut your fabric to the length and double the thickness you want it.
2. Fold you fabric in half length ways, right sides facing and sew along the long edges.
3. Turn the tube from inside out to the right way round and sew the two ends about 2″ into the tube.
4. Cut off the selvedge to create a raw edge (Cut off anything that is keeping the fabric from fraying)
5. Make a cuppa, put your favourite tv show on and fray the edge of your fabric. This is easier if you have a quick unpick to hand or a tapestry needle. You want to pick up each lengthway strand one at a time and pull them out to create the fraying. Stop about 1cm before your sewn line.
