Pattern and Sewing Instructions:

Zero Waste (ZW for short) > > is a philosophy that strides for sustainability. The aim is to live a life producing as little waste as possible and not to waste raw materials.

Two stripes of fabric are used for the tunnel and the ties and you can use the last piece of fabric to sew a hairband.
