Not only does it look cool, but it was fast and easy.
I did trim 1/8" off the corner after the binding was attached to the back side to make the corner transition smoother.
Fussy cut the white skull fabric 3.5" wide with skulls centered (1/4" seam). Made a tube and seam is centered down the back of the strip. Had to cut each strip in half an re-orient so the skulls were always upright. Pressed and top-stitched before I attached. 20" of strap above the edge. 3" from side-seam.
Well, I'm off to try to sew clothes with the daughter. And a reminder to those of you making comments... about 1/2 of you are showing up as "no-reply" bloggers. If you have left a comment on one of my blog posts and didn't get an email reply, you probably need to fix your settings. I suspect this is a "Blogger Thing" as it has happened with people with whom I've always been able to reply and many new followers (Stephanie, I mean you.)
Oh!!! I found the Love Entwined Applique. I had foolishly "put it away" into an old suitcase that I sometimes use for projects. It was hidden under a pile of fabric waiting to become clothing.
