2 fabric rectangles measuring 17" x 11.75"
1 fabric strip measuring 6.5" x 37.25"
bias tape measuring approximately 45"
(you may wish to measure bias tape once you've trimmed for exact amount needed)
Step 1: Align bottom left corner of one of your rectangles with one corner of your strip, right sides together. Sew using 1/4" seam allowance stopping when you reach 1/4" from the top left corner of rectangle. See pictures below~
Step 2: Stopping 1/4" from end of rectangle, keep needle in fabric and lift presser foot. Now turn fabrics 90* angle to form a corner (picture 2) - and lower presser foot. Continue sewing until you reach next corner and repeat this step. See pictures below~
Step 3: You should have something like this. It looks sort of like 1/2 of a box. Now, line of the right side of your other rectangle with the strip and repeat above steps. When you are through, you will have a box shape - turn inside out. See picture below~
Step 4: Now that your 'box' is turned inside out, line up the bottom and trim any excess pieces. See picture below~
Step 5: Now you will add the bias tape. For accuracy, you may wish to measure around the bottom of your cover. Add 2" to your measurement and fold down one edge about 1" and iron. Next, begin sewing on bias tape BUT do not start at finished edge. Go about 3" down to start (see picture 2). When nearing the end, tuck the raw edged bias end into the finished edge and continue sewing until you reach your starting point (see pictures 3 & 4 below). Back stitch several times to ensure hold. You are finished!
Now, put over your sewing machine and ENJOY!
