1/4 yard or fat quarter of a solid pink
Omnigrid tumbler template
Using the Omnigrid template or make your own out of cardboard. The Omnigrid tumbler is 2 inches at it’s narrow end and 3.75 at it’s widest. The height at the center is 3.5 inches.
Here is what one charm will yield. A tumbler, 2 scraps, a 1.5 X 5 inch strip and a 1 1/4 inch X 3.5 inch strip. Set the 1.5 inch strips aside for the prairie points. FYI….I cut all my tumblers and lost the pictures. I re-made the photo using a different fabric line…the cutting result is the same.
The trickiest part of the tumbler is aligning the pieces before sewing. Offset the sides about 3/8 of an inch…
Continue to piece so that you have 6 strips of 5 tumblers. Piece rows as shown.
Trim the top by making a straight edge on the 2 longest sides. The short sides will be straight.
Measure your top and cut 2 peacock fabric strips 1 1/4 inches by that width ~ approximately 18 3/4 inches. Add to the longest sides of the top.
Cut 2 solid border strips 12.5 X2.5 inches. Sew to short ends of topper.
Fold the piece inward so that the raw edges meet.
Do this for both sides and iron. These are very small so accuracy is important.
Pin, Pin, pin the the solid pink border as shown. Then baste about 1/8 inch from the raw edges. The raw edge will be covered by binding. NOTE* start your point placement about 3/8 inch from the edge and overlap the side edges about 1/4 inch.
I stitched a 1/4 inch inside each tumbler.
