Wreath Sash Instructions
- Start with fabric 72 inches in length. Kris says you can go however wide you’d like, but to remember that you’ll be folding the fabric in half, so the end result will be half of the size. Kris sticks with 13 inches wide.
- Fold the fabric with the right side together, and sew all the way down one side. Close off the tube with a simple stitching, but make sure to leave a little opening so you can turn it the right way out.
- Kris says she thinks the key to a professional looking sash is to steam or iron it to get a nice finish.
