Cut Fabric

With measuring tape, cut fabric into a 27 x 34-inch piece. Mark both sides with chalk 9 inches from the top.

Mark Angle

With a straightedge, mark upwards at a 45-degree angle inward toward the center of fabric. Make sure to leave a straight neck at least 11 inches across at the top.

Create Seam

Create a 1 1/2-inch seam by folding fabric under on all sides. Pin and sew together (image 1). If working with stiff denim, use an iron to set in the seams (image 2).
