-1 1/4 yard flannel
or other fabric– 2 prints
or other finish for edges
If you’re using flannel or any cotton fabric, make sure you pre-wash for shrinkage.
I also ironed with starch to help the pieces lay together better before cutting.
1. Cut fabric
You’ll cut each fabric 41″ long.
2. Fold in Quarters
With the fabric folded matching up selvage edges, fold one side on the other into quarters. All raw edges will match up and all selvage edges will match up.
3. Cut Corner Curve
Measure your folded sides to 17″ and mark. I would suggest folding your quarter, along the 25″ line in photo below–just place one fold on top of the other fold, then you can measure the longest peak of your curve at 25″ then curve it down to the 17″ mark on the folds. It doesn’t have to be perfect, but it’s nice if it is all symmetrical.
