You need two yards of coordinating fabric,
yard stick(for the pattern),
6 pieces of paper taped together (for the pattern).
The first thing you need to do is make your pattern. After you have the papers taped together draw a 18" by 28" rectangle. Be very careful to make it symmetrical. Cut out the rectangle, next find the center of the paper and mark it.
Now you can fold the paper in half along the center line. At the bottom corner mark with a pen 6 inches from the bottom corner. Then go to the top and mark 3 and 1/2 inches from the center fold. Now take your yard stick and connect the to points drawing a diagonal line across the paper. Cut along the line and open the pattern.
This is what you should have .28" across the bottom,6" up on the sides,16" along the diagonal cut and 7" along the top. This pattern need to be symmetrical to work.
Lay the pattern on you fabric and trace two shapes on each yard of fabric,cut them out. You now have four pieces. Lay two of the same print fabric right sides together lining up the corners, pin and sew along the top 7" line.
