Those straps look as though you could quilt one long strip. So you could you use quilters cotton fabric.

Or perhaps some home dec. fabric. In most cases it is stronger & thicker. Especially fabrics you would use for heavier curtains, or pillows.

Good luck.

That is so cute! & the fabric is gorgeous.
You did a great job & should make yourself some more. Then you will have a T&T pattern (tried & true).  Wink

Very cool work. Your first shirt is brilliant! & the second one very sweet. I'm inspired to "enlarge" my Harry Potter OOTP freebie shirt now. Thank you so much.

Make yourself some tank top & p.j. bottoms. They are very easy to make & would oh so comfy!! & would use up your fabric stash.

Cut fabric into different length strips, braid them & you have dog or cat pull toys.

Or cut into strips & braid into a little floor rug. I think there is a tutorial on here somewhere for that.

Good luck & show us what you come up w/.   Smiley

Cute slippers. And as far as I can tell, I think hand sewing is your best option.
28  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Let's see your sewing machine!! on: May 26, 2008 07:20:14 PM
These are my two babies.

My very first machine that I purchased, a White something or other. Just had her tuned up so she's in awsome working order (& very clean).

My second machine & the one I use the most, my Viking Prelude 360. I love this thing! We are great together & grumpy together. She gets me.  Roll Eyes

By the way, this is a great thread. It's fun seeing what everyone is creating on.

Pressing ham & sleeve roll

The ham on the bottom is a pressing ham. I think the one on top is called a sleeve roll. The shape of these make it much easier to press curves in your garments.

Watching TV & sewing do NOT mix. When my attention is diverted to something on the tele I HAVE to stop sewing. Two times I've had a sewing machine needle go through the side of my index finger. Ouch!!!

A large fabric & pattern stash are essential to sewing no matter what my partner may think.

Pre-wash fabric... always. If you dont, those cute pj bottoms you just made will shrink two sizes smaller after the first wash.  Angry

All of the other tips here are great & oh so true!!
