I am new in this group and I am also new in sewing. I am hoping some one can help me to identify the length of the fabric needed to covering a twisted cord as a tiebacks for drapery.
The book I use for reference called for 5/8″ twisted cord but I couldn’t locate it and I think I bought 12/32. (I put the measuring tape around the cord loosely & the circumference is 2 1/2″) The book called for 3″ bia-cut strip for 5/8″ and according to the general information, they said twice of the length of the twisted cord. If it is the case, I would need 5″ to cover the cord & it seems very much fabric.
I hope above is enough information.
