Day 25 and the Double Faced Flannel
Bare minimum of sewing is used for this project. If you have a sewing machine, you'll find this goes a lot faster. This is a good project immediately following the Scrapper scarf. That was crazy, but this is very sane.
Cut 2 pieces of flannel the same size and shape. Go for a rectangle if you're new to sewing. Line both pieces up together with wrong sides out and sew around three edges leaving the one short edge open. Clip the corners and turn the whole thing inside out. Clip the corners of the open edge and tuck the open edge to the inside. If you're a perfectionist, sew that last seam by hand with invisible stitches. If you're not as picky, just sew the edge shut with your machine. There will be a slight hem, but if you're careful you can make a very neat finish.
I cheated a bit here and cut one piece of flannel twice as wide as I wanted it and only sewed 2 sides before turning. The end result is the same, but I'm a big old cheater ;)
