Alternative fastenings

Following on from the Busy Bag post, here’s a tutorial for making alternative fastenings out of scraps.

You can use any fabric/felt scraps you have. Off cuts from making the strips are perfect. You will also need some string/thread.

Take a scrap strip of chosen fabric, roll up from the short end and tie in the middle.

Cut two small slits in the link strip, thread an end of string through each one and tie off in a double knot. Trim the string ends.

Once you have cut a slit in the other end you can push your new toggle through and voila!
