Depending on your need and the fabric chosen there a few ways you can cut your strip. I cut mine from selvage to selvage. You can cut on the bias it will stretch more, but usually easier to turn. If you cut on the bias you may want to add elastic or cording for extra strength.First, make the fabric straight (I rip my cotton so it's perfectly straight). Then, measure the width. I did 2 inches.
Leopard and snakeskin are the new neutrals.
