  • sewing supplies

First, cut out a square piece of paper that is 8×8 inches.  Then use the curved edge of a cup or bowl to trace onto a corner of the paper square to round it off and then cut it off.  Use that curve to trace around the other 3 corners and cut those off as well.

Use the paper pattern to cut out 2 curved squares from your fabric.

Then fold the top edge of your square down a third (2 2/3 inch).  Then use the remaining 2/3rds as another pattern piece and cut out 2 of this shape as well.

Now, baste stitch around the perimeter of each stack of fabrics, about 1/4 inch from the raw edge, combining the layers all together

The fabrics will probably shift slightly while sewing….so trim off any extra edges to be sure the sides remain even.
