Begin by cutting a strip of fabric that is 34×4″. Next, starting about 2 inches from the top right, begin cutting the corner so it is rounded and then comes to a point in the middle as shown in the photo below. Do the same on the other remaining corners.

Next, fold the strip in half lengthwise with wrong sides out and sew almost all the way down, following the edge and leaving a 1/4″ seam allowance. Stop about 1.5″ from the bottom so there is a hole left.

Using that hole, turn everything right side out by threading the fabric back up through it.
