  3. Cut triangular strips of orange fabric. They can be wide or narrow and need to extend at least 1/2 inch past the edges of the template. Sew the strips together, until it is slightly longer than the template. Press seams. NOTE: Be sure to test fit the template onto the fabric frequently to make sure you have proper coverage.
