Fabric tubes

There various methods by which one can decorate neck. Now a days decorating with” fabric tubes” are in fashion. Fabric tubes can be bent to take the shape of any curve (except for narrow curves) so it used in applique work for creepers Fabric tubes are used to make loops also.

Method of making Fabric tube

Cut true bias strip if the fabric 1 ½” wide. (Figure 1). Fold the strip in to half length wise. Keeping right sides together machine stitch as shown in the fig. 2, leaving ¼” seam. Thread a tapestry needle with a thick thread and knot the end. Take a stitch at the point A and secure it with one more stitch. (Fig 3) Insert the needle through the opening near the point A. (fig4) . comes through the other end. (Fig 5). Pull the thread slowly. This turns the tube inside out.
