I love stripes!

I love sewing with striped fabric, making striped quilts, and crocheting striped softies. 🙂

There are a lot of ways to do that – including some pretty crazy complex methods – but I’ve found a very simple method that’s super easy – and smooths out those stripes just enough to make me happy.

Here’s how.

See how easy that is?
