You will need:
1 fat quarter of fabric
Insul-Bright (can be found at JoAnn's)
Cut a rectangle of fabric 12 1/2 inches x 22 inches
Fold in half with RST (right sides together) as shown below
Sew along one short end and the open long end. You will have an opening on one short end remaining.
Turn right side out and press
Next take your Insul Bright which has a silver (almost tinfoil like) lining to it..
(Can you see the silver lining in the picture? It's not a very good picture.. sorry.)
and cut a strip that is 5 1/2 inches wide x 21 inches long.
Now slip the Insul Bright into the "sleeve" of fabric. This will take some work and adjusting to get it flat.
Next, fold your fabric over the Insult Bright at the opening and press opening closed.
Leave this open for now.
Next - go to the other short end (the closed end) and stitch along this end. You can use any stitch you want - I used a decorative stitch, but a straight stitch looks good too.
Now fold this stitched end over and down (does that make sense? LOL) approx 2 inches from bottom opening.
You can see in above picture the stitched end and the open end. Pin in place to prevent shifting during next step. (walking foot recommended)
Next - you will stitch along 3 sides as shown in picture below. This will close your open end.
That's it.. you are done!
Now go put away that HOT curling iron!!!
If you make one - I'd love to see it.
And don't hesitate to ask questions - I will answer them all!Pin It
