  1. Cut 2 square pieces of iron on adhesive paper and blue felt, making sure they are large enough for the Sizzix Bigz letter dies.
  2. Back the blue felt with iron-on adhesive paper.
  3. Die-cut your letters (felt side down).
  4. Peel off the iron on adhesive backing paper.
  5. Cut mint felt into two 35cm x 47cm pieces.
  6. Cut blue and white fabric into two 35cm x 60cm pieces.
  7. Cut into the bottom two corners of all mint felt and striped fabric pieces – a 4cm x 4cm square cut.
  8. Place the two mint pieces together and sew side seams and bottom seam, leaving the cut corners open.
  9. Pinch the corners so the side seam and bottom seam come together and stitch across the open edge.
  10. Turn right side out.
  11. Place the two striped fabric pieces right sides together and sew side seams and bottom seam, leaving the cut corners open.
  12. Pinch the corners so the side seam and bottom seam come together and stitch across the open edge.
  13. Turn in the top raw edges and press a seam. Pin the pom pom trim along and around this edge, with the pom poms facing upwards. Trim to fit.
  14. Sew this seam, fixing the pom poms in place.
  15. Insert the stripe fabric into the mint sewn piece, wrong sides together. The stripe fabric should come up taller than the mint.
  16. Sew all around the top of the mint piece, fixing it to the stripe fabric at the top edge.
  17. Fold the top of the stripe piece over the mint felt to show the right side and the pom poms.
  18. Position your die cut letters on this striped cuff and fix in place with an iron.
  19. Where the ‘O’ should be, sew the large button.
