Step Description
1 For this lesson, we have prepared two pieces of cotton pique fabric measuring 5 ½” (14cm) in the fabric’s wide by 8” (20.3cm) in the length.
2A We will be using a Pilot Erasable pen to mark our seam allowance. Our lines will disappear once the fabric is pressed.
2B With the length edges of the fabric pieces facing you, mark the seam allowance at ¾” (1.9cm) away from the edge with your clear plastic ruler. Repeat this process on the length edge of the second fabric piece.
