Step 1: Cut the fabric

Cut two 4.25″ squares of linen fabric and one 4″ square of two-sided fusible stabilizer.

Step 2: Fuse the stabilizer

Place the stabilizer between the linen squares and iron on both sides.

Step 3: Sew and fold

Finish the edges by serging or sewing with a zig-zag stitch.

Fold in half and iron flat on both sides.

Step 4: Add the chalkcloth

Cut a 1.5″ x 3.5″ rectangle out of the chalkcloth fabric.

Cure the chalkcloth by rubbing chalk on it then wiping it clean.

Glue the chalkcloth to one side of the linen.
