I am taking an online sewing class at
and last week's class was
They suggested making a burp cloth or two but I have no need for those so I figured I would dress up some plain kitchen towels with a colorful panel.
Here are the towels and the fabric I plan on using
First I cut out the three panels
and then I sewed them on the front of the towels
I sewed them at different heights because I thought they looked more interesting that way.
and this is the finished product!
I didn't stop there though...
I needed a new cover for a q-snap I found while "organizing" my stash
I found this tutorial and thought
THIS LOOKS EASY!
and it was ;)
So I got out this fabric and elastic and got to work.
I needed it to fit an 11" x 11" frame so
my fabric is 45" x 7"
made a hem of a half inch on each side
(I folded it in a 1/2" and then did it again)
then cut 2 pieces of elastic -
I folded the fabric in half and used that
plus another inch for the length of the elastic
then I threaded through the elastic through
the hem and sewed the elastic to
the fabric to secure it on both ends
sew a seam to join the two ends together
and VIOLA it is a q-snap cover!!
Thanks for taking a peek at my sewing!
