This was really popular with the kids in my studio - they'd make a bunch for their friends. I even modified it for one girl who was a regular - I embroidered "Cheer" on it!
Why is it a great project for a beginner?
- The 1/2" seams leave some wiggle-room for mistakes. Everything doesn't need to line up perfectly.
- The cording is threaded through a casing at the top rather than a seam. More room for error!
- The final step involves sewing side/bottom seams rather than inserting the lining in the outside and sewing along the top...and hoping it fits.
Thread the cording through the casing with a BIG safety pin or a cord threader. I have a collection of these...red..blue.
FYI: I've used both for years. One of the "eyes" snapped off on the blue one, but I still use it. I LOVE this product!!
This pattern is only $3.99!
