We'll be using:

Ok, let's do this!

Firstly, lets make our Sizzix sandwich. Place your cutting pad down first. Next stack your die on top - foam side up. Place 2 fabrics on top of that, right sides together - making sure to cover up all of the die cut lines. I used two prints from the upcoming Cottage Garden line from Liberty of London - due out this fall. Thank you Jenni Smith for the chance to play with the line before release!

Roll your Sizzix sandwich through the machine.

Tada! Here are your pieces, all cut - dog eared and even paired up and ready to sew!

Place 2 pairs next to one another like the photo to ensure you end up with mirrored pieces. Clip at the beginning and end of each seam.

Chain piece your units together using a quarter inch seam allowance.

Roll open your seam.

Clip at each edge and use a fork pin to ensure the center seams come out matching perfectly. You insert the pin, one prong into each side of the seam line and then flip it over until and jhooshe it until it's aligned the same on the back.

Using a quarter inch seam allowance, join the two parts together making sure your needle avoids that pin.

Roll open your seam then repeat all the sewing steps for the other set.
