so I dug around sales bin everywhere and tortured my index finger with a gazillion mouse clicks while I searched Etsy. Nothing. So, I had no choice but to make my own. No pattern used. It’s just one piece of slightly stretchy polyester knit. I’m so lazy I faked a seam. Meaning, I folded the cloth length-wise into half and sewed up the sides. But there would be just one side seam. It’ll look weird. Just to balance things out, I sewed where the other seam would have been as if it were two piece of cloth instead of one. Do I make sense? Anyway, halfway through…
