So, let's pick the two pieces which look most similar to eachother.
Fuse them with fusible web / vliesofix. Remove the paper afterwards.
Put the pieces on top of eachother
And cut them together to get the same size:
Now, don't move your pieces, and start cutting 1,5 cm (about 0,55 inch) both layers at the same time:
Now iron the strips on a piece of thin fabric. Start with strip 1 piece A, followed by strip 1 piece B. Continue with strip 2 piece A, followed by strip 2 piece B.
Remember, don't move around with your cutting mat or the pieces..., you will not be able to refind the correct sequence anymore.
After ironing, fold every second strip double, and stitch it at the edge. It doesn't matter if it is 100%perfect but try to keep a straight line.
