STEP 2

Cut out two 2.5x20cm pieces of card web.

Iron the card web onto the back of the fabric pieces and turn the fabric edge over 1cm to the inside. Stitch the zipper on one side of the fabric pieces 1cm from the edge.
STEP 4




Cut two 3x22cm strips of medium size dot fabric. Fold one edge over 0.5cm and iron it. Repeat for the other piece of fabric. Place the strips on the backside of fabric with zipper and secure with pins. Turn the fabric over and sew the layers together with red coloured zigzag stitches as shown.
STEP 5



Cut out 5x14cm of medium size dot fabric and 2x12cm of card web. Center the web on the back of fabric and iron. Fold the fabric edges in lengthwise, making sure they overlap. Sew the edges together using red thread and a big zigzag stitch.

Sandwich the card web between pieces of fabric and iron. Sew them together by stitching an "X shape" on top. Repeat for all fabric and web cut in Step 6.
STEP 8


Sew the pieces together into a strip; start and end with the smaller rectangles. Place the left sides of two fabric pieces together at a time and sew the right side, leaving a 0.5cm seam. Tack the strip next to the zippered fabric piece as shown in illustrations, insert the strap and quilt everything together.
