You need only about half a square foot of fabric. It needs to be reasonably stiff; denim or heavy cotton is ideal, and you may have suitable scraps in your scrap pile. You also need a couple yards of thin double fold bias tape in a matching color (or anyway a color you like). Thread, scissors, tape measure, sewing machine are the only other requirements.
Step 1: Cutting and edges
- 8" x 4"
- 7 3/4" x 3 3/4"
- 7 1/2" x 3"
Sew bias tape to one of the long edges on each of the two smaller pieces.
