CUT­TING AND JOININGTHE STRIPS

Step one Cut your print fab­ric into eight equal width strips each 48cm (18#⁄"in) long. Sew two of these right sides (RS) to­gether at the short ends to make one long strip. Re­peat to join the other two strips in the same way.

Step two Press the seams open and then top­stitch the seam al­lowances down about 2mm ($⁄"in) ei­ther side of the seam.

CUT­TING AND JOININGTHE STRIPS

Step one Pin the two strips RS to­gether. Draw a point at each end of the strip, mak­ing sure they are ex­actly the same. Mark a turn­ing gap about 5cm (2in) along from one of the drawn tie points. Your turn­ing gap should be about 6cm (2!⁄"in) wide. This is marked in the photo with or­ange pins.

Step two Sew your strips to­gether, start­ing at one end of the turn­ing gap and work­ing all the way around to the other end. Re­verse stitch at the start and the end of your stitching to se­cure the seam.

Step three Turn RS out through the turn­ing gap. Press it flat then slip stitch the turn­ing gap closed to fin­ish.
