- Instead of using freezer paper stenciling for the front patch, I created a bee design using my Silhouette machine and their heat transfer material.
- I rounded off the outer corners of my front and back pieces to make inserting the piping easier.
- I inserted piping before sewing my front and back layers together.
Silhouette machine and heat transfer material (I purchased a bee design from their online store)
Basic sewing supplies: machine, shears, etc.
- Apply your heat transfer bee design to your front patch piece (the 10.5-inch square) according to the heat transfer package directions. Fold under each of the raw edges of this patch piece 1/4″; press.
- Center the patch face up on top of your front panel piece and pin into place. Edgestitch to secure your patch to the front piece.
- Fold under one long edge of one of your back panels 1/4″; press. Fold the same edge under another 1/4″; press. (You are creating a narrow hem.) Stitch along this hem to secure it. Repeat with your other back panel piece.
- Using a round object as a template (a roll of ribbon works well), round off all four corners of front panel piece and the two corners at the unstitched sides of each of your back pieces.
