Craft Cotton Company Sew Beautiful set of Fat Quarters & Turquoise Plain Dyed Cotton
Cut 1 12.5” x 17”
Cut 1 5” x 17”
Cut 2 3” x 17” Plain Dyed Turquoise
Create a Scallop Template, put the two pieces of fabric R/S together, draw round the on the W/S of the fabric. Pin to secure. Sew on the lines of the scallops.
Cut close to the stitching without cutting through it, and make little slits at the points
TOP TIP: (yellow arrow) as you reach the top of the point, turn and do 1 stitch across before turning to go back down.
Using double sided fusible, draw around the letters required and bond to the fabric.
Peel off the backing and then bond onto the cushion. Sew round each letter.
R/S together attach the scallop to the bottom of the top part of the cushion. Sew along (Red Line) Iron flat then sew the bottom part of the cushion on.
I used a 17” cushion inner. The back is Envelope style.
