Step 1

Layer the fabrics starting with the cotton batting on the bottom, then place one of the fabrics with the right side facing up on top of the batting. Pin the ribbon 1 1/2-inches away from the corner on both sides.

Place the second piece of cotton fabric on top with the right side facing down. Pin all around the four sides. Pin another ribbon in the same way on the opposite corner from the first ribbon.

Step 2

Sew around all four sides, being sure to remove the pins as you sew. Leave a 5-inch opening in one side.

Clip all four corners. This will reduce the bulk and help the corners to lie flat when you turn it right side out.
