Charm Square Preparation



Step 1.  

a) Organise your squares into 24 sets (set = 1x front & back square)  

b) Arrange your sets into your final layout.



Step 2.

a) Take a square set & place fabric RIGHT SIDES together

b) Using 0.5cm seam allowance, sew sides together leaving a small gap

c) Turn the squares RIGHT SIDES out (through small gap)

d) Sew the small gap closed.

e) Iron

* Repeat until you have 24 sewn squares.



N.B  RIGHT SIDES = patterned sides

Blanket Stitch



Step 4.

a) Using the Top Stitch seam as a guide,

Blanket Stitch along all sides at 1cm intervals.

b) Tie off



N.B This pattern was made up as I went along,

so you may find that the 1cm interval will fall short in places,

especially at the corners  - THAT'S OKAY!
