NOTES

  • 1/2" Seam Allowance used.
  • Attach right sides together.
  • The finished size can be adjusted by subtracting the same amount on the length and width of each piece (example: if it says 3" x 11" and you want to shrink it by 3/4", cut 2.25" x 10.25")
  • The seam allowance can be changed to 1/4" to save on fabric, just remove 1/2" from each measurement. Example: if it says 3" x 11", cut 2.5" x 10.5.

CUTTING
Cut Fabric A (Background) into the following pieces:

2- 2.5" x 11"
3 - 2" x 11"
1 - 3" x 4"
1 - 3" x 5"

2 - 2" x 3"
1 - 2" x 4"
1 - 2" x 5"
3 - 4" x 3"
1 - 5" x 3"
For top and bottom (background) pieces: measure your piece after it's finished to determine width, but it should be approx. 29". Top piece is 2" high, bottom piece is 5" high.

2 - 3" x 11"
3 - 3" x 4"

>>Trim excess fabric around each side.

>>Cut backing fabric and batting. 

>>Lay backing fabric wrong side up, lay batting over the backing, then lay the top panel right side up onto the batting. Smooth out the layers to get out wrinkles and bumps.

>>Fold back the top panel and batting half way and spray the backing with basting spray. Lay flat and smooth out again. Repeat on other half. Then repeat this same step folding back just the top panel and spray the batting.

>>Create corner pockets for the back: Cut 4 - 4.5" x 4.5" squares of any fabric and fold them all in half diagonally creating triangles. Fasten triangles to each corner, so the folded edge is facing towards the center. 

>>Quilt as desired (I prefer stitch in the ditch for a project like this).

>>Add bias tape around outside, over all layers, including corner pockets.

>>If using shank buttons, add them to the twine and tie knots in each end. If using closed clips, you'll want to add those to the twine too, before you tie knots.

>>Center the jute twine along the bottom of the top panel, 1" below the letters. 

>>Stitch vertically across the twine on each side of the buttons to fasten into place, then stitch vertically across the center of the twine (evenly space) to secure it and create spaces to hang keys (slide clips over as needed). Note: skipping this part will cause the weight of the keys to tug on the fabric and it won't lay flat.

>>Insert dowels into the corner pockets.
