Turning Fabric Tubes

These are the instructions from Sham's (Communing with Fabric) video post on how to turn a fabric tube using a bobby pin. I'm posting it here in the hope that next time I need to do this I'll know where to look!

Technique:

  • Sew the fabric tube, right sides together. Make it at least an inch longer than it needs to be.
  • Fold the top ½" to the inside of the tube and cut diagonally across one corner forming a cut-out diamond notch
  • Insert the shorter leg of the bobby pin into the top of the tube (the core) and the longer leg of the bobby pin in through the cut-out notch. Start turning.
  • Once the tube is fully turned, chop off the dodgy end with the notch.
