* To cover section 1 * lay down 4 cm fabric A with the right side to the plain blue fabric in the middle, topside together with the edge of the plain blue fabric. Sew together on the line of section 1. Unfold the strip, flatten and fix with a pin on the next sewing line.

To cover section 2 lay down 3.5 cm fabric B with the right side to the plain blue fabric in the middle, topside together with the edge of the plain blue fabric. Sew together on the line of section 2. Unfold the strip, flatten and fix with a pin on the next sewing line.

To cover section 3 repeat with 3.5 cm fabric C.

To cover section 4 repeat with 4 cm fabric D.

First round is ready! Turn over and cut off the fabric that is to much and so you can see the next quadrangle. Do not cut into the paper!

Repeat from * with larger fabric strips, see the pattern. The order of colours is the same: A on 5, B on 6, C on 7, D on 8. After section 16: sew with tacking-tread around the cup to fix the small strips of fabric on the magic paper, just outside the sewing line. Cut out 0.7 cm outside the tacking-tread.

 

Compose:

Lay down the cup with the right side on the thin white fabric and sew together over the sewing line, except from top to bottom of the ear. Turn the cup inside out and iron the cup. Use the border maker for fabric B 12 x 1.5 cm. Sew with white treat the cup on the white background fabric and make the ends of the ear on the right place. Sew with blue treat the ear on the background fabric. Fix the pink cotter-pin.

Lay down the cup with the right side to the cutting mat. Fix double sided tape on all edges from one side of the white card. Place it with the other side on the backside of the cup, fold over the top and bottom edges and fix on the tape. Cut off the fabric that is too much and fold both sides of the fabric on the tape. Fix new double sided tape on all edges and fix the white card on the front side of the double blue card.

How to work

Trace the whole pattern on the magic paper. Turn the magic paper, cover the middle triange with fabric plain blue and fix it with pins. Turn back and  make together with tacking-tread just outside the sewing line. Turn and cut the fabric in form with little seams. Don’t cut into the magic paper!
