  • Bias tape-2 yrds(store bought or homemade)
  • Thread
  • Sewing machine

Instructions:

  1. Lay out lining, canvas and batting. Lining with right side facing away. next lay the canvas and then the batting on top.

  3. Continue in this manner, working your way around and outward laying strips alongside and sewing them down as you go; till all of batting is covered.

  4. At this point you may want to trim corners on one end; Making one end rounded. The rounded end will be wrapping around to form a close-able flap.
     
  5. Sew bias tape around the edges of work, giving it a finished look.

  6. Now on the end of the square quilt-pieced end, sew the fuzzy sided strip of velcro. Then on the rounded lining end, sew the scratchy sided piece of velcro.
     
  7. Lastly, fold your rectangle, so that only 2 1/4 " remains unfolded. It should look somewhat like an envelope. Now sew the top and bottom seams together, closing the envelope. The velcro should be able to fold over and close together. Finished!

It's beautiful! I don't usually try sewing something so ambitious, but I have to try this!

I had to look at it close and reread the directions, and your right, they are not real clear. But I figured out how to do it without all the quilting ideas and such. It can be a simple piece if you take it slow and pick colors you like and not a lot of patterns in the material. That makes it hard to see and hard to work with. I will try to finish one soon and post a pic of my finished product. But I will use my ideas of what they are trying to say. Maybe zigzag stitch instead of all the bias tape, I hate working with that stuff. It never comes out right or straight. lol

I agree with the first comment that you'd need to be a quilter -this is foundation patchwork, if I'm not mistaken. I haven't done that yet so this might be a good one to try out this technique. But you could also do a much easier version if you mad an upright version of the cover

I really like this idea and the colors are lovely. However the instructions aren't very clear. I quilt so I pretty much knew what to do but if I was a beginning sewer I wouldn't. Like when you say to lay a strip down along side the square and sew it down - beginners might not know what that means. Anyway I like it and will probably make it.
