Just in Cases Update (Extra Tips) 10/20

There is a lot in this pattern that goes beyond what most of us do in quilting. Based on a few questions received over the years, let’s see if these pointers help:
Frog Case:

– With belly pieces wrong sides together you stitch the mouth edge seam only, (top of piece) and THEN turn right-side out, finishing this top edge only Figure B.

– After turning, you clip both edges three times as shown Figure C. creating “tabs” where the finished mouth ends. You will catch these in the binding, however….

– The first tab stays flat and will be caught in the binding. The second tab gets folded in and whip stitched creating finished edges for the arm holes.

– Pin together the belly piece to the frog top piece, matching the bottom edges and baste. Then machine-stitch the binding, being careful not to close the arm holes catching the tabs above in the binding seam Figure D.

– Before hand-stitching the second binding edge, insert the open edges of the back legs into position inside the binding Figure H. and pin or baste. Secure the legs with hand-stitching.

Turtle Case:

-As with the frog, you stitch and then turn right side out the top edge of the belly piece only Figure I. Note: When you clip the seam where the finished edge stops, you release the rest of the edge to lay flat and catch inside the binding.

– Attach the back legs as with the frog legs in Figure H.

Note: The plastic pockets on the frog Figure D. and Turtle bellies are optional.
