This step by step tutorial will help you prepare your kilt strap for sewing onto your cape.
You will need:
- Pair of kilt straps
- Sharp tapestry needle
- work surface protector
Mark a line 5mm in from edge of strap on the reverse side as shown above
Place the strap on a blocking board or similar to protect your work surface. Use a very sharp tapestry needle to pierce a hole through strap, space the holes approximately 5mm apart
Continue piercing holes approximately 5mm apart as shown above
Turn strap over, push the needle through the existing hole from the front to the back, for a nice neat hole
