Holey, moley, more holes..

Now, if you want multiple holes, they each need their own little facing piece

Sew, trim, turn, press, you know the drill

Nice.. Squares make house-windows, circles like little moons.

Now, the padded version.. Layer batting/wadding, then RS up, then RS down, draw, sew...

Trim out the batting/wadding as close to the stitching as possible

Trim the seam allowance to 1/4 inch and snippety-snip

Turn through...


and quilt...

More 3D shapes tomorrow...
