This is the fun part, sewing these little strips together. It didn't specify in the pattern what the seam allowances for this part were, so I just used 1/8 in since we are working with such small pieces. When you place your pieces together make sure that the seam lines are what line up, not the edges of the fabric. If that doesn't make sense take a look at the picture below.
Yay! You're done with the tricky part!
Press the seams and then trim those squares down to 4.5 in x 4.5 in. Go ahead and cut out your cotton batting to the same size now too.
We'll sew everything together in my next post.
