Instructions:

1. Roll your batting out and generously spray with adhesive.

2. Place your letter down and trim around it to shape, leaving generous seam allowance. Fold the batting onto the sides of your letter and press to adhere. Repeat on other face of the letter.
*If you are planning on adding a base, create holes in your Styrofoam letters first. *

3. Do steps 1-2 on all of your letters.

4. Lay your patterned fabric out and place your freshly batted letters on. Trace and cut out two pieces, one for each face. Be sure to leave a little seam allowance, the fabric should go over the edge of the face slightly.

5. Cut any slits necessary to fit to the curves of your fabric. Attach the fabric to the corresponding face of the letters with Fabri-Tac.

6. Measure about 1” wider than the edges of your letters, cut a long strip of your solid fabric to edge your letters with.

7. Glue your solid fabric strip to the edge of your letters, leaving enough room to fold the edges under and glue for a clean hem along the corners and edges of your letter.

8. Glue twine along the line where your patterned and solid fabrics meet to give a crisp outline and hide any imperfections.

9. Attach to base if desired.

10. Enjoy!
