This has absolutely nothing to do with sewing better except, I came away with this fabric
that is the spare from this button up wrap someone has asked me to make for them.
I have no idea of the fabrics composition so when I remember I'll do a burn test on a few strands.
Fabric strand burn test
I pull a few threads of fabric away from the main body of the fabrics edge, hold them in some large tweezers and hold it over a candle.Have some water in a bowl nearby and ready for putting out the flames should they spread. Only use very few threads of the fabric and make sure your hair is tied back and sleeves/ loose clothing is out of harms reach.
If it bubbles and melts and turns hard like plastic, it's probably synthetic and if it turns to ashes or smells like burning human hair or wool, it's probably natural fibre. It could be a mixture of both.
Anyhoo, this is what I've done so far.....

|fabric has been turned through and pressed.|
I folded and stitched the short sides together to enclose all raw edges then put a covered snap on the corner

|snaps ready to be closed|
sorry about the shaky photo
