I’ve had this blue crochet material sitting around for ages that was perfect for the project. You can use any kind of lace or crochet fabric. I also used a floral print cotton blend.
To start, I cut two 11″ by 55″ rectangles from the floral print and one of the crochet material. Feel free to make it thicker or longer! Have fun experimenting.
Take one of the floral printed rectangles and lay it wrong side down, right side facing up. Then lay the crochet fabric on top of it. Pin all sides. Baste stitch every edge. If you are new to sewing, baste stitches are made by setting your sewing machine to the longest length. The stitches are not permanent and use less thread.
Now you have two rectangles. One with the crochet fabric attached to it and one without. Lay the two rectangles on top of each other, right sides together, and pin. Sew only the two longest sides, creating a tube. Press the seams then turn right side out.
Now comes the trickiest part. Take the two open ends of the tube and begin pinning right sides together, making sure all seams line up. You won’t be able to pin the whole way. Pin as far as you can, then sew the pinned area. There will be a small hole left. Hand stitch the hole. In short, you’re sewing the ends together. And you’re done!
