How to make a Monster Rangers Sash
By Megan Joliff


Average Measurements:

Teen : 4″ wide x 62″ long

Standard Adult : 4″ wide x 72″ long

Large Adult (6’1″-6’4 : 4″wide x 80″ long

XL Adult (6’5″+) : 4″ wide x 82″/88″ long

Materials Needed:

Fabric:

  • Sash Fabric : 100% cotton 2 – 2 1/2 yards
  • Pellon Fusible Featherweight Interfacing 2 – 2 1/2 yards

Thread that matches the fabric

Tools:

  • Ruler
  • Fabric measuring tape
  • Pen
  • Fabric Sheers
  • Pins
  • Sewing Machine
  • Sewing Needle

Step One:

Measure across the body where you would like the sash to lay using the fabric measuring tape. Make sure to leave some slack. Add a half inch to the width and length.
My personal measurement is 3 1/2″ x 60 1/2.” I added a half inch and made it 4″ x 61″.

Step Two:

Mark the Pellon Fusible Featherweight Interfacing to the same measurements (using the ruler) and cut the interfacing.

Step Three:

Apply the interfacing by ironing it to the fabric chosen for the sash. See interfacing instructions for the correct temperature setting.

Step Four:

Cut the fabric that has been ironed to the interfacing, leave a bit of extra fabric around the edges.

Step Five:

Pin the cut fabric with interfacing to the uncut fabric and use this as a guide to help you cut a second piece.

Step Six:

Pin both pieces of fabric to each other. Keep in mind that the sides facing each other, will ultimately be on the outside of the sash.

Step Seven:

Sew fabric together with a 1/4″seam line, leaving one of the short ends of the sash open.

Step Eight:

Cut corners off and trim all edges clean.

Step Nine:

Turn sash correct side out and iron.

Step Ten:

Tuck in the open edge of the sash and pin in place.

Step Eleven:

Either sew the pinned end closed with the sewing machine or with an inside stitch.

Here’s the finished Sash, with Megan modeling it!
