Talking Universal Roll Up

Hey Roomies!

Here is another craft:

Universal Roll Up

Materials needed:
3 by 2 feet piece of material
needle
thread
stick pins
scissors
ribbon



Fold material in half by the width not the length
<-----3ft----------->
2 *--------------------*
F * *
t *XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX*
* *
*--------------------*

Take the top layer and fold down by 1/2 inch three times....

Now you will want to sew up your 1/2 inch hem.

If you can picture a rectangle its the edge that would run the length not the width.

*----------------------*
*_______ hem __________*
*----------------------*
*----------------------*
*----------------------*


Now once you have laid your top piece
down after doing your hem.....Using some stick pins and a tape measure; you will want to measure up six inch
increments.

*----------------------*
*----------------------*
*___x___x hem __x__x___*
*----------------------*
*----------------------*

It will look like a rectangle with the stick pins measuring out six inches going down the length.
Now where those stick pins are you will
want to sew up to the hem.

*---------------------*
*---------------------*
*__X_ X hem_X___X__X__*
*--X--X-----X---X--X--*
*--X--X-----X---X--X--*

Once that is done, cut the ribbon in half this is for the ends Place the ribbon in the middle of your width.

*----------------------*
*----------------------*
*****----------------------******
*----------------------*
*----------------------*


This is so when you roll it up you can tie it.

Now this is something the kids can put
their treasures in or you can use it for putting in things like socks shampoo and whatever you need for the baby.
