Fin­ish­ing Ma­te­ri­als & In­struc­tions

• 16" x 8" piece co­or­di­nat­ing Du­pi­oni

silk for lin­ing • 16" x 8" piece fusible in­ter­fac­ing • 16" x 8" piece white cot­ton fab­ric • Clear ny­lon sew- on snap • Co­or­di­nat­ing sew­ing thread

Press stitched piece from re­verse side, straight­en­ing as much as pos­si­ble. Trim stitched piece to 20 threads from rose gar­land on both long sides and on short side be­low gar­land. Trim stitched piece to 33/4" on short side above crossstitch ini­tials.

Cut silk lin­ing, in­ter­fac­ing and white fab­ric to same size as trimmed linen. Fol­low­ing man­u­fac­turer’s di­rec­tions, fuse in­ter­fac­ing to wrong side of stitched piece. Place white cot­ton fab­ric on wrong side of linen and sew to­gether around all sides us­ing 1/4" seam al­lowance.

Pin silk lin­ing and as­sem­bled stitched piece right sides to­gether. Sew to­gether us­ing 1/4" seam al­lowance, leav­ing a 3" open­ing for turn­ing. Turn right side out, blind-stitch open­ing closed and press seams.

Fold up ini­tials end of as­sem­bled piece ap­prox­i­mately 5" to form pocket; press folded edge. Us­ing lad­der stitch, sew sides of pocket to­gether, leav­ing top open. Fold gar­land end down over pocket to cre­ate flap; flap should not cover ini­tials, but should over­lap top of pocket. Press folded edge. Cen­ter one half of ny­lon snap on linen above ini­tials and sew in place. Cen­ter other half of snap on silk-lin­ing side of flap, mak­ing sure snaps align, and sew in place.
