  • Cut a sarong in half lengthwise.

  • Iron the runner and seams with a medium hot iron.
  • I prefer 100% cotton sarongs as they last longer than synthetic ones.
  • With the other half of the sarong divide into squares and make some colourful serviettes.
  • Also make a small seam around edge with machine.
  • Iron finished item, neatly flattening the seams.
