4th of July Sashes with Cockades:
Our local neighborhood has a old-timey 4th of July parade. A mixed bag of costumers is getting together to walk in various costumes. We have watched the parade in the past but not participated, this year we are walking. To add to the "Rose, White, and Blue" theme (as this is the Rosegarden District) I am making sashes with cockades. These are made of cotton quilting fabrics that are seasonal and a left over fabric stash fabric.
The brilliant thing about this is that I have discovered an excellent tool -- my orthopedic back roll, you know, the three foot or so long Styrofoam roll that you stretch your back over. Turns out it is great for making cockades and it is tall so you can sit with it between your legs on a stool and not have to slouch or kick back on the couch and have a good work surface at an angle....love it!
