TO FINISH OFF

Weave in any loose ends and then soak in lukewarm water for 15 minutes using a suitable wool hand wash. Rinse thoroughly. Roll in a clean, dry towel to remove excess moisture and then block, so that Front measures 38cm x 38cm, Upper Back flap measures 38cm x 20cm and Lower Back flap measures 38cm x 32cm. This will allow for sufficient overlap on the back.

When dry, remove pins and sew up side seams, ensuring that the Upper Back flap lies on top of the Lower Back flap. Insert cushion pad.
