- Needle and coordinating thread
- Four 2” bamboo rings (I found them in the knit/crochet area at Jo-Ann’s)
Step 1: Cut two fabric strips 18”-x3½”.
Step 2: Turn the short edges under ¼” towards the wrong side of the fabric; press. Turn again another ¼“, press. Stitch close to each edge.
Step 3: Fold the long sides, right-sides together, so the edges meet. Pin in place. Starting at one short edge, stitch a ¼“ seam, turn and stitch ¼“ down the long side, leaving the other short end open for turning. Trim the corners (don’t cut into your stitching) and the two seams you made. Turn right-side out and press. Slip stitch the open short end to finish.
Step 4: Fold one end of your tieback over a ring. Pin and hand stitch to complete. Repeat for the other tieback ends.
ADDITIONAL BATHROOM IDEAS
You could also use strips of fabric to tie your shower curtain to the rod. And maybe trim a pair of bathroom slippers with a little yo-yo or flower made from your fabric scraps.
Other ideas include cutting a strip of fabric (you can trim with your zig-zag scissors if you like) and tie a pretty bow around a big bar of soap. I just folded the edges on mine in nice and neat.
Cut small strips of fabric to tie around your cosmetic brushes…
…or even the handle of your scrub brush.
There’s still fabric left with which to play. I have a good use for it and will post another tutorial tomorrow.
