Are you ready to party?????
I was a little nervous at first. I knew in my head how I wanted them to look but I wasn't sure if I would be able to pull it off. Well, I don't know about you but I LOVE IT!!!!!
They are nearly one size fits all, Cailey, Deanna and I can wear them.
WHAT I USED -
2 pieces of team colored chevron fleece - 24" long by 4" wide
1 piece of black minky dot - 6" long by 3" wide
1 piece of 1/2" elastic - 4" long
1 small piece cut from team print cotton
1 small black bow
First I cut my pieces to 24" long by 4" wide.
Step 2 -
Next, I cut out the team logo and trimmed it up a bit (maybe a little too much).
Step 3 -
Sew along the edges. You can use a zigzag. I used a straight stitch (I don't mind if the edges fray a tad after washing).
Step 4 -
Take both fleece strips and pin them with right sides together.
Sew along both long sides but not the short ends.
Step 5 -
Take your 6" long by 3" wide piece and fold it in half with right sides touching.
Pin and sew a seam down the long side.
Turn right side out.
Step 6 -
Take a large safety pin and pin both ends of the elastic.
Push through the tube.
Pull the safety pins out the ends and sew the elastic in place.
Step 7 -
Fold in the ends of the fleece.
Slide the elastic casing into the end and pin.
Sew in place.
Now, do the same for the other side.
Step 8 -
Take fabric glue and glue on a bow.
Wait for the glue to dry and you are all done!!! :D
