Take a pencil and a strip of fabric 4” x 36” long into the kitchen.
Find a box of chocolates, eat them.
Use the box to make a template – flatten it out. You’ll need 4”wide x 3” – if the cardboard is too small, eat something else.
Fold cardboard in half so it is 2” x 3”
Find a small cereal bowl and use it to mark a curve from the bottom corner to the top centre fold.
Find kitchen scissors and cut curves. Open out flat.
Place template on reverse of fabric and mark fabric both ends.
You can now go to your sewing machine (which may not be in your kitchen), cut the fabric curves with your best scissors, pin right sides together and sew along length, leaving a gap of about 2-3” just before one curve to turn through (backstitch points).
Close and press.
Tie up hair with newly made retro style fashion accessory and fix yourself a cocktail.
