Ninja attack!

ninjas This weekend, Luke and I set about making some ninjas for him and his buddy. He picked out the fabrics, blue for him, and the red woodgrain for his friend (the pattern is from Melly & Me). The pattern has some handy tips for turning the ties, but they were still pretty fiddly. I think I'd use ribbon if I made another one. Untitled Well, I say one is for his buddy...we'll see...

If you want to make ties without turning, do it like bias tape, by folding the sides to the center, the ends in,then fold in half and edge-stitch all the way around.
These are really cute!

Turning ties makes me cry. I love the suggestion of making them like bias tape. These are so cute! Now you need to make them sleeping bags.
