2. Fold the fabric in half lengthways and inside out, pin in place. Mark a 10cm gap, 10cm’s from one end.

3. Stitch the fabric together .75cm from the edges of the fabric, you can round the ends slightly if you prefer, or leave them square. Make sure you leave the 10cm gap open so you can get the beads inside. Back tack at the beginning and end of each seam.
