Today we are going to work on a lot of little things.
You will need your 4 handle pieces and your 2 handle accent pieces.
** If you are going to use D-rings you will need those, and your 4″ x 12″ piece.
**instructions for D-rings
**Step 1– Lay 4″ x 12″ (d-ring strap) piece, wrong side up, on your ironing board. Fold long edges over 1/2″ and press them in place.
Fold the entire piece in half matching folded edges. Press.
**Step 3– Topstitch down both edges at 1/8″.
** Step 4– Take this “strap” to your cutting board and cut it into four 3″ chunks.
**Step 5- Thread each of the 3″ pieces through a d-ring.
**Step 6– Sew across the strips as close to the D-ring as your presser foot will let you.
**Step 7- put your d-rings aside for now.
Step 8– Line up you Strap pieces with an accent piece in the middle. Sew them together with 1/2″ seam allowance. Press seams flat.
Step 9– Take straps to the ironing board. Lay them interfacing side up. Fold long edges in 1/2″, and press.
Step 10– Fold entire strap in half, matching folded edges, and press.
Step 11– Topstitch down both sides, of both straps, at 1/8″ and 1/4″.
