  • Fabric (for inside and outside)
  • Iron-on interfacing
  • Lace
  • Faux pearl bead
  • Scissors
  • Sewing machine and supplies


  1. First and foremost, iron-on your interfacing on the wrong side of all of your fabric.

  2. Take a round item (I used a roll of packaging tape) and trace onto one of the edges of your fabric pieces.
