Prep Work:

Pour Terial Magic (or a good heavy duty starch) into a bowl and dip fabric, completely wetting each piece.  Smooth out and let dry for about 15 minutes (if you let it dry too long it will be very hard to get the wrinkles out). Use a protective cover over the fabric to protect your iron and press till wrinkle-free and dry using a cotton setting on your iron. If you have any Terial Magic left, you can pour it back into the bottle.

 

Iron fusible interfacing to each piece of the fabrics. This is an important step for 2 reasons, first and foremost, it will decrease the fraying of the fabric, and secondly, it makes your fabric nice and crisp, and is less subject to puckering.

 

With the machine set to “sewing”, we need to first make the hanger long tab.  Cut a piece of the “Main” fabric 8” x 3”.  Cut interfacing the same size.

Iron the interfacing onto the back of the main fabric.

With right sides together, fold this in half lengthwise and sew a ¼” seam allowance on the top and side.  Leave the bottom open for turning.  Once turned, press seam flat. Sew a top stitch around the sides and top.
