  1. Take the 2 medium blue cotton strips and sew them on both sides of the main white cotton fabric panel as seen in image #1
  2. (optional) Flip over and sew again to secure the pieces in image #2
  3. Mark off where you are going to cut  the diagonal pieces. I placed the piece over the cut piece of the dark blue fabric. I titled the main "hostess" piece until it was at an angle I preferred and marked off all four corners where the it met up with the edge of the dark blue piece in image #3. The width came out to 7 in.
  4. Cut diagonal marks of the 2 "hostess" pieces (Just so you know I love the rotary blade cutter. Makes things soooooo easy when needing long straight lines.) image #4
  5. Glue a line down the middle of the light blue felt pieces and attach to main "hostess" pieces. image #5-6
  6. Zig Zag sew, finishing off edges of felt. images #7-9
