Materials Needed:

  • interfacing
  • stapler
  • glue gun
  • scissors
  • iron

Cut Interfacing to Fabric Size

Cut fabric interfacing – this project used Wonder Under - to 8x20 inches. Iron the "right" side of the interfacing to the "wrong" side of the fabric. Let fabric cool then peel paper from interfacing that is now affixed to the fabric. Place another piece of 8?20 fabric "right" side up on the top of the "wrong" side, with the interfacing sandwiched in the middle and then iron together.

Cut Fabric Strips

Use scissors to cut fabric into 9 strips: Three 10" strips, three 9" strips, two 8" strips and one 6" strip.

Create Loops

Starting with the first 10" strip of fabric, make a loop on one end with the tail meeting up in the middle. Flip the fabric over and do the same with the opposite end until the tails meet in the middle and overlap slightly.
