So of course, I was on Pinterest and found this awesome project! I am NOT a sewer, so I tried to do it without needing a sewing machine. Now, I will say that these probably can't be washed in the washing machine because I used iron on hem bond, but hand washing them will work! They turned out cute, and had I used fabric rather than old bandanas I had laying around, they would have turned out even better! I followed all of the project directions exactly, except where it says to sew, I used iron on hem! Where it says decorative stitch, I used ribbon. Like I said this was my first crafty project in a long time so I used what I had so that if I didn't like them, I wouldn't care. I think they turned out cute though! Thanks to http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/ for the awesome idea!
|8 inch square. I thought it would look cute with the edges matching.|
|The space in between is the 1.5 inch gap - you need this to pull your material inside out and look pretty. don't forget this step or it won't look as nice! :)|
|After you iron on the hem, you have to pull it inside out, showing the nice part of your fabric.|
|Then I cut more hem and ran it along the border and added ribbon. This step is not needed but it did jazz it up a bit!|
|Then you fold it over twice|
|more hem bond - let it sit with something heavy on it.|
|Tada! No one will ever misplace their wine glass OR get your coffee table messy!!! Love this!|
