It took yards and yards of fabric and piping to make the cinnamon bun tie backs, but well worth it.
The tiebacks were a last minute change . . . I confess.
The fabric and piping was made for the hem,
but the drapery fabric being so stiff--it wouldn't puddle nicely. So I abandoned the idea of fabric piping for the hem, and instead made cinnamon bun handstitched tie backs. It was the best use of all that fabric piping.
The 1/2" piping in the hem of the Mossy Green drapery fabric for the master bedroom had worked out so well--it worked like magic. It's a little theatre trick my sister Pam designed. She sewed the drapes for me during a week long visit. She's a theatre costumer on the east coast.
