cotton fabrics, 1/4" elastic, binding, polyester thread, sewing tools and supplies.
What was your inspiration?
An upcoming Arts & Crafts fair - thinking it may be a good idea to make some to sell...and so, I came up with this one...will probably make more now that I have one that seems to work. It measures ~ 18" long & ~ 12" diameter (~6 1/2 " across as folded).
What are you most proud of?
That it came out to be functional! and it doesn't take a lot of time to make one.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
The hardest thing about making this is the elastic...make sure it is sewn secure - before you take the pin out of it.
