  • The first thing you need to do is cut out your templates, lay them out and fold each in half and mark the center on all sections that will be sewn together.


  • Next, Cut a square of fabric large enough for your template C- lay the fabric face down, as shown in picture, place the paper template on top, face up, and pin to your fabric...After it is pinned well enough, trim around the template leaving some fabrc past the inch seam allowance (room for error)



  • Now we are going to sew this paper to our fabric, all the way around, inside the seam allowance (not on the line) This will give stability when we are sewing the sections together. Remove the pins as you come to them, also I like to use a large stitch width for this part. I’m really just basting the pattern to the fabric. When you come to the end, do not enclose the stitches, stop about inch before the start point. This way if you need to loosen your stitches you can just give it a tug and it will have somewhere to go J



  • Now I have sewn all around the section, and basted my fabric on, and I am going to trim all the excess fabric that is past the seam allowance paper edge, so I have a perfect piece
