"Shower Cap Making, Crochet and Hexies for FNSI."
Friday Night Sew In means a bit of time for me to complete a project and work on some smaller projects.
First of I made a shower cap.
I found a few tutorials online but ended up doing it my way.
I used a hairdressers cape for the lining. I actually had this in a bag ready for the op-shop but when I decided to make the shower cap, it came out of that bag. I drew a circle of approx 32 cm with the fabric folded in half. This could have been cut back to 30 cm. I then put the fabric and lining right sides together and sewed around the edge. Leaving a gap for turning through. I finger pressed the edges and sewed a row of stitching around the edge. Then I sewed the bias binding 2 inches in from the edge and threaded the elastic through. One very easy shower cap. I didn't use pins to hold the fabric and lining together, clothes pegs were used instead. When it came to holding down the bias binding I used some tape that I have had for ages that I use to use when sewing lingerie.
Later on in the afternoon I started some crochet. Even though the written instructions are in a foreign language with the symbols it was easy to do. Then in the evening I worked on some more of those hexies.
Hope everyone that joined in Friday Night Sew In had a productive time.
