  3. Cut two additional pieces of fabric, one 18” x 13-½” and one 18” x 15-½”. Turn under 1” of the raw edge of the 18” side. Turn over 1” again and hem. Repeat for both pieces.
  4. Lay out embroidered fabric with right side up. With the longer of the two hemmed pieces, line up one side with the right sides facing and pin. Overlap the short piece and line up to other end and pin. Sew around with 1” seams.  Clip corners and turn right side out.
