This tutorial will show you how to take an existing tank top that you love to wear, rub off the pattern and create a tie back that is perfect to beat the heat this summer. These instructions were written for an adult, but the same method can be used to create a tank top for the little one in your life!

Janome Supplies Required
  • 1 well fitting tank top (top rub off)
  • 1 yard of jersey knit fabric
  • 1/2 yard of contrasting jersey knit fabric
  • Pattern tracing paper or craft paper
  • Jersey needle

Caroline made this tank top using the Janome 4120QDC sewing machine.

I like the concept, but the directions are "sloppy." Nowhere in the supply list does it mention the felt or the batting (how much?). Also, I would never use a high loft batting in a placemat, or a table runner, as I think that it would be too unstable for a glass. The next time I make these, I will cut out the batting (I use flannel) and spray baste it to the wrong side of the Dresden plate before I put the Dresden plate on the felt to cut out. I have not yet washed the finished placemat, and am hoping that the single layer of felt does not curl up, or become distorted after washing/drying.

I made this today but your cutting directions need to be changed. You only need 4 of color 1 and color 3 4.5 squares for the triangles. Also the inner border, you only need 2 cuts as WOF is long enough to cut each in half to fit the sides.
