If you’re anything like us, you probably have an abundance of fabric lying around your house, just begging to be put to use. Well, we’ve got just the project for you: a money sash! This simple project is perfect for anyone who wants to add a little bit of personality to their outfits. In just a few short steps, you can have your very own money sash made and ready to wear. Whether you’re looking to dress up a plain outfit or spruce up an already fashionable ensemble, this project is perfect for you. So get yourself some fabric and start sewing!
What You’ll Need
In order to make a money sash, all you will need is:
-A length of fabric at least 60 inches long
-A piece of ribbon or cloth about 2 inches wide
-Ruler or a straight edge
-Heavy interfacing (optional)
1. Cut the fabric into two equal lengths. Right sides together, sew the ends of each piece of fabric together. Leave a ½ inch seam allowance. Turn the resulting tube right side out.
2. Make a small hole in one end of each piece of ribbon or cloth. Insert the edges of the fabrics through the holes and pull tight, forming a loop. Trim off any excess fabric.
3. Sew one end of each loop to an opposite end of one piece of fabric, making sure the loops are aligned so that they form a “X” design when closed (see diagram below). Trim any extra fabric away from these seams if desired. Repeat Steps 2 and 3 to create additional “X”s on both sides of your money sash (see diagram below).
4. If desired, fold one long edge over 1½ times so that it forms an extra ¾ inch border around the outside edge of your money sash (see diagram below). Topstitch along this edge using a zigzag stitch for added durability.
How to Make the Sash
There are many ways to make a money sash. You can use fabric or paper cloth. The raw materials you will need are:
-One piece of fabric, about 60 cm by 120 cm (24in by 48in)
-A pair of scissors
1. Cut the fabric into two equal parts, one 120 cm wide and the other 60 cm wide.
2. Place the piece of fabric with the long sides facing outwards, so that it forms a rectangle.
3. Fold each short end inwards towards the centre of the rectangle, so that they meet in the middle and create a folded edge.
4. Now spread each fold outward by about 1cm (½in). This forms a crease down the centre of the rectangle.
5. Take your scissors and cut along both folds, making sure not to cut through either side of the crease – you just want to cut through both layers of fabric at this point. Do this on both sides of the rectangle, making sure to keep the unfolded edges intact.
6. Next make a small hole in each corner by pressing your fingers into them very tightly and then pushing down – this makes it easier to push your thread through later on.
7a Thread one end of your thread through each hole on either side of the sash; Knot tightly if desired (see below for knot instructions). Repeat on opposite side.

How to Decorate with the Sash
Making a sash is a fun way to add some extra pizzazz to your holiday decor. You can use any fabric you like, and it’s easy to make. Here are the steps:
1. Cut your fabric into the desired length. For a basic sash, about 54 inches (137 cm) is enough.
2. Make a hem on one side of the fabric, about 1 inch (2.5 cm) from the edge.
3. Fold the fabric in half so that the hem meets in the middle, and sew together along the folded edge using a straight stitch or zigzag stitch. Allow an inch (2.5 cm) open at each end of the sash for sewing onto your garment or decoration.
4. Turn your sash right-side out, and press down gently with a hot iron to seal the seam allowances closed.
Tips for Making a Money Sash
Making a money sash is an easy way to get some extra cash. Here are tips for making one:
1. Decide what you want your money sash to do. You can use it as a door prize for a party, or tie it around the neck of your pet dog to raise money for their vet bill.
2. Get the materials you need. You’ll need a thin piece of fabric (about 18 inches by 24 inches), some clear tape, and a sewing machine.
3. Cut the fabric into two strips, each about 1 inch wide and 24 inches long. Make sure the stripes are even on both sides of the fabric.
4. Place one strip of fabric horizontally across the other, aligning the edges so that they’re flush against each other and double-stick tape them together along the top and bottom edges (make sure to leave a 2-inch gap at either end). This will be your money sash frame.
5. Sew along one edge, leaving a 1-inch opening at one end to turn it into a tab (this will be used to keep the sash closed).
6. Turn the tab so that it’s facing away from you and press down so that it sticks out about 1 inch from the frame (this will ensure that your sash opens and closes easily).
7. Sew up the remaining edge, making sure not to go over any of your tabbing stitches (these
What is a money sash?
A money sash is a decorative piece of fabric that is typically used to hold closed a pocket or purse. It can also be used as a belt loop, or to tie together two pieces of fabric to make a curtain or shawl.

Making a money sash is not rocket science, but it does require some planning and sewing skills. All you need is a piece of fabric about 58 inches wide by 3 feet long, a piece of bias tape, and a zipper.
1. Cut the fabric into two 29-inch-wide strips. Fold each strip in half so that the raw edges are even. Sew the folded edges together with a seam allowance of 1/2 inch. Trim the seam allowances to 1/8 inch.
2. Turn one strip right-side out and press it flat. The length of this strip should be equal to the width of your money purse or wallet plus 2 inches (58 inches + 2 inches = 60 inches).
3. Make a mark at 6-inch intervals along one edge of the strip, then draw a line perpendicular to these marks (see diagram below). Sew along this line, being sure to leave an opening at the end for turning (see diagram below). Trim away any excess fabric from around the opening.
4. Turn the second strip right-side out and press it flat, centering it over the first strip (see diagram below). Align the raw edges of both strips so that they match up exactly and sew them together using white bias tape as close to the outer edge as possible (see diagram below). Trim off any excess bias tape.
5. Open up your money sash and

4. Carefully slide your money sash onto your dresser or door knob and check to see if it fits properly! If not, adjust as needed (using basting spray if necessary).
How to sew a money sash
If you’re looking for a craft project that can easily become a last-minute addition to your holiday decor, sewing a money sash is definitely the way to go. All you need is some fabric, thread, and a basic sewing machine, and you can create this versatile accessory in just minutes.
To sew a money sash, start by cutting two pieces of fabric that are about 2 inches wider than your desired finished length. Then, fold each piece in half along the middle line so that the fabric is now just slightly bigger than the circumference of your chosen object (in this case, a dollar bill). Next, use a seamstress’ pin to secure the folded edges of each fabric piece together at one end (the open end), then sew around the circumference using a regular stitch. Finally, turn both pieces inside out so that the seams are now hidden and finish off by zigzagging each edge once or twice with a Sew-All thread needle to make it extra durable.
Now you have yourself a nifty money sash that can be used as an elegant finishing touch on all sorts of festive garments – from dresses and skirts to tunics and cardigans. With just a few simple steps, you’ll be able to create something special for yourself or someone you love this Christmas season!
