Step 1: Gather Supplies
100% cotton woven fabric, print of your choice, 20 inches X 6 inches
minky fabric for lining, 20 inches X 6 inches
cotton low loft batting, 20 inches X 6 inches
all purpose thread
1" woven elastic, about 5 inches
scissors and rotary cutters with mat
small bowl, about 4 inches in diameter
Iron and ironing board
Step 2: Make a Template
Next, Mark a line through the rectangle, 6 inches in.
Using this line as a guide, center the small bowl over it and trace a circle.
Using freehand, draw lines connecting the edges of the circle to the sides of the rectangle.
Designate the 2 1/2 inch end of the longer side as "fold." This side will rest against the fold of fabric when you cut it.
Cut out the template.
Step 3: Use Template to Cut Fabric and Batting
Carefully cut around template using scissors or rotary cutter. Do this for the cotton fabric, minky, and cotton batting.
Step 4: Layer the Fabrics Together
Layer the batting first, then minky with right side up. Place the elastic strip against one of the small edges.
Next, place the cotton print fabric right side down.
Pin well all the way around your piece.
Step 5: Sew Pieces Together
After you've sewn it, carefully trim off the corners. Cut notches around the round areas and cut away excess fabric.
Turn it right side out and use the point of your scissors to push out the curves and corners.
Next, with the opening on the long side, fold the fabric in and pin in place. Using the corner of your iron, carefully press the edges on the cotton print side.
Step 6: Topstitch
Topstitch 1/4 inch from the edge around the entire piece.
Enjoy and be warm!
