Hi there !! I can't believe I will have kids in my classroom exactly two weeks from today. Crazy !! On top of just getting back from vacation, I feel like I'm running against the clock trying to get it all done. Anyway, it's Monday & I'm linking up again with 4th Grade Frolics for a Monday Made It !
These are sewn together, and believe me when I say I am NOT a good sewer (is that a word?), so if you can sew a straight line, you can do this. And, if you can't sew....you can use that iron-in sticky adhesive stuff. I know that's not the actual name, but I can find it if you need it.
Anyway, I bought 7 yards of duck canvas. It holds up better. This will make approximately 25 covers.
You lay it out, and measure 16" wide and 30" long for each cover. Like this:
Then, you turn it over to the other side (the side you have NOT folded up yet), and fold up 8 inches, and fold down a 1 inch hem...essentially doing the same thing.
You can choose to just sew these up if you want to, but you'll have a raw edge. That's why I put ribbon around mine.
So, you take 7/8" ribbon of choice...line up the sides as even as possible...and pin the ribbon around it.
Anyway, finished product:
My Monday-Made-It for Home
Lastly, the Newbie Blogger Blog Hop...
As a new blogger, I'm trying all kinds of linkys, so I wanted to join in on the Newbie Blogger Fun.
I linked up with Janis from Grade Three is the Place For Me to introduce myself.
