I love the children's book by Simms Tabak called Joseph Had a Little Overcoat. The moral of the story is that "You can always make something from nothing." I try to live by that principle, or at least by making do with what I have. So, when I was given a nice white cotton sheet with a tear in it, I knew that it still had lots of life. I didn't quite make something from nothing, but it's close enough in my opinion.
|Sorry, the tear is not shown, I already starting cutting into the sheet before I thought to take a picture of it.|
|If you only have enough fabric to make a 7 by 9 piece, that's okay too.|
Next, take your fabric square and sew around three of the edges leaving a hole on one of the sides. You don't need to sew around the folded edge. You'll turn the cloth inside out through the hole - so make it about 2 or 3 inches long. I usually use the edge of my presser foot as a guide, and that's what I did this time too.
