HOW TO TURN SUPER THIN SPAGHETTI STRAPS RIGHT-SIDE OUT
Have you ever been frustrated with turning super thin spaghetti straps right-side out? I know I have! Though turning short straps for a camisole can be easy, turning a really long belt for instance can be a pain in the neck. Today, I'm gonna show you the easiest way to turn long spaghetti straps right-side out. Hopefully this tutorial will save you a few F-bombs in the future. :)
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
- Bias strips (prepackaged or make your own)
- Hand-sewing needle
1. If you decided to make your own bias strips, cut out the pieces to the desired length and width .
If you're sewing strips together to make one long piece, make sure to trim the seam allowance down to about 1/8".
2. With right sides together, stitch the seams.
Then trim the seam allowance down to about 1/8". This part is important! Trimming the seams down will help the fabric scoot along easily later on.
Now you have something that's called a fabric tube...
3. Double thread your needle and whip stitch the edge of the tube a few times.
4. Insert the needle backwards into the tube.
5. Scoot the needle and thread along through the tube, gathering the fabric as you go.
Pull the needle and thread while sliding the tube inside itself. This is the tricky part, but once you get the first bit inside, you should be good to go.
Keep pulling until you've completely turned the tube right-side out. You can do it!
Voilà! Now you have beautiful looking, super thin spaghetti straps.
