Joining in on SewJo Saturday, today.
The last couple weeks have been about little finishes.
I finished quilting a quilt for a friend (which I can't post about just yet) and I finished piecing and binding the Quilt of Valor donation quilt made by the Fredericksburg Modern Quilt Guild. Another member will be binding it so it's off to her next week.
Prize 1 - zippered pouch
Prize 2 - 12" mini
Last little finish, a bunch of headbands. I keep buying headbands in hopes I can find ones that don't slip off during exercise with no success. So, I tried making one.
It worked, didn't slip once while exercising. I've made several more and will send them to my sisters and a friend to test and see if they work for them as well. Regardless of their review, they work for me and a couple of these extra ones will be in my drawer. :-)
- fold in half lengthwise and sew long side together
- turn right side out and tuck the short, raw edges inside the tube about 1/4"
- press the whole thing
- position the elastic about 1/4" inside a short end and then sew the short end closed going over it about 3 times.
- repeat on the other side and it is complete
