    Fabric tubes are used to make loops and to decorate neck etc…
    Cut true bias strip if the fabric 1 ½” wide. (Figure 1).Fold the strip in to half length wise. Keeping right sides together machine stitch as shown in the fig. 2 ,leaving ¼” seam. Thread a tapestry needle with a thick thread and knot the end. Take a stitch at the point A and secure it with one more stitch. (Fig 3) Insert the needle through the opening near the point A.(fig 4).Needle comes through the other end. (Fig 5). Pull the thread slowly. This turns the tube inside out.

    Hi Vani
    You have explained nicely how to make fabric tubes with illustration. Thankyou very much.
    If you could please show some figures to depict how these tubes can be used. That would be useful to many ILites who are beginners in sewing.
    Regards.

    Hi Vani,
    thanks for the tips and pictures.
    Chitra, we could use it for chords in back/front necks in blouses and kameez also. Also we can use it as decorations onthe edges of sleeves and neck.

    These are some more types of blouses.We can use to decorate cushion covers also.Fabric tubes are stitched using true bias strips. So it can be stretched according to shape.
