4.Put quilt batting on the wrong side of the cotton. Sew all the fabric pieces using bright color thread, 1-2mm inside the fabric.

If you worry about fraying, use fusible interfacing. For me, a bit of fraying gives another charm.

5.Change dark color thread(I use Aurifil 50wt, espresso brown) and sew the outside of bright thread.

7.For the pencil, I use orange thread and fill the space using sewing machine. It’s super fast way of satin stitch. 🙂

8.Put the other cotton for back on the 7. facing right side together, sew all the way, leave a hole.

Pull right side out, with hand stitch, close the gap. Iron it.  With 2 strands of embroidery floss, hand sitch around the images.
