    Such easy instructions! So, I made a strap out of left over fabric instead of buying an already made one and I went with a remnant fabric I found in a dollar bin at an upholstery store, it is not funky, but rather an austere beige. It looks really good, so hey, there’s wisdom in simplicity, right? Thanks so much for this tutorial.

    Do you know where to get that cord? Do they sell it in stores? Whats it called?

    Your local fabric store should sell it. Some call it ‘elastic drawstring cord’ or ‘elastic cord’. It comes in different colors and is sold by the meter/yard, so it will be on a roll and they usually sell the ‘drawstring cord locks’ close by.
    Good luck!

    This video is great! Very easy to follow instructions! What material would you advise? Cotton? or Curtain fabric? Thanks

    I would use any sturdy fabric, nothing stretchy. Curtain fabric is great. Good luck!
