It's a quick, cheap and relatively easy project, perfect for summer!
Step 1: Materials
-one package of double fold bias tape quilt binding
A note on fabric selection. I used a relatively thick cotton jersey. This would probably also work well with terry cloth! Whatever fabric you chose, make sure it can get wet! Wash and dry your fabric beforehand.
Also, since you need only a yard of fabric, check the remnants section of your fabric store. You might be able to find just the right amount of fabric and get a great deal! I found this white fabric in the remnants section at my local fabric store and chose a deep teal binding for a nautical feel.
Step 2: Open and Cut and Pin Binding
Pin the binding along the two selvedge edges of the fabric, making sure to push the edge of the fabric all the way into the crease so it is sandwiched in the binding.
When you get to the end of the edge, to make the arm loop, leave a loop of binding unattached over about 6 inches of fabric, then reconnect the binding and pin securely. To make sure both arm loops are even, fold the fabric in half and use the loop you already pinned down as a guide for making the other one.
Pin binding down securely each edge of the fabric.
Step 3: Sew
I sewed each side three different times, but this is completely overkill and you really only need to sew them once, I just like the look of the three lines of stitches.
