COM­PLET­ING THE FIN­GER POT HOLD­ERS

Pre­pare a trac­ing tem­plate us­ing the pat­tern given. 1. Po­si­tion and baste a 4" length of rick­rack or pip­ing over the seam line on the right side of a B rec­tan­gle as shown in Fig­ure 1.

2. Layer a sec­ond B rec­tan­gle, right sides to­gether, with the first with trim be­tween and pin to a 23/4" x 4" rec­tan­gle of cot­ton bat­ting to the bot­tom of the stack. Sew the lay­ers to­gether over the bast­ing stitch, catch­ing the trim in the seam as shown in Fig­ure 2. 3. Trim the bat­ting seam al­lowance to 1/8" and flip the top B rec­tan­gle to the back so the bat­ting is sand­wiched be­tween the fab­ric lay­ers and the rick­rack or pip­ing ex­tends above the seam as shown in Fig­ure 3.

4. Use the pre­pared trac­ing tem­plate to round the lower cor­ners. Baste around the edges to fin­ish one fin­ger pocket as shown in Fig­ure 4. 5. Re­peat steps 1–4 to make a sec­ond fin­ger pocket. 6. Layer one A rec­tan­gle right side down, an in­su­lated bat­ting rec­tan­gle shiny side down, a4" x 71/2" cot­ton bat­ting rec­tan­gle and a sec­ond A rec­tan­gle right side up; pin or baste to hold. Re­peat to make a sec­ond lay­ered A unit.
