These instructions are for a button and loop closure option. You can use Velcro instead if you want.

Steps:

  1. This pattern consists of three pieces, the "front", the "back/flap", and the "lining". Pin the pattern to the fabrics you chose. NOTE: I chose fabric that was directional so I needed to cut the "back/flap" pattern apart and turn the flap piece to maintain the direction.

  5. You will need to add and mark a 3/8" seam allowance at the top of the "back" piece and the bottom of the "flap". This will allow you to sew them together once they are cut out.
