- Stitched design
- Backing fabric
- PVA glue
- Something heavy for weight
- Braid, pins and ribbon
- Sewing thread/sewing machine - if making the ORT bag
Have your stitched design washed and pressed. Decide how much allowance you would like around the stitched part and pull a thread from each side and top and bottom. This will leave a gap in the fabric and will be used to line up when glueing. Then trim an allowance of 2inches all the way around. - Just as you would for the Flatfold.
Cut 2 pieces of backing fabric the same size as your newly trimmed stitched piece and 1 with an extra 3 inches on one side. For the pocket cut 1 piece the same width but half the length.
As you can see I haven't trimmed my stitched piece as I stitched it too close to the edge of the fabric and so need all the fabric possible, lol.
Cut your cardboard into 4 equal pieces, measuring the same size as the shape created on your stitched piece.
