EZ Spaghetti Straps

Just a little tip today.

To make spaghetti straps that are sturdy but yet CUTE - here is an easy way to do it.

Take about a 2" strip of fabric by whatever length you want, fold the long side right sides together.
Use the left hand side of the presser foot as a guide. Fold on the left, raw edges to the right.
Serge down the long strip cutting away the excess fabric (raw edges).
Use a safety pin or tube turner and turn the fabric right side out. The seam inside gives the strap body and durability.

BE SURE THAT THE folded LEFT SIDE OF THE FABRIC IS RIDING ALONG SIDE THE LEFT HAND SIDE OF THE PRESSER FOOT - NO EXTRA.

This technique can also be used to make belt loops, button loops and Celtic frogs. Give it a try and let me know how much you love this quick and ez technique!
