STIFFEN FELT PYRAMID
Supplies
Template
X-acto Knife
Spray starch
Iron
Hole Punch
Ribbon
1) Cut pyramid template from a heavy paper or carton. Fold back edges for later use.
2) Apply spray starch to both sides of the fabric twice. Let dry between applications and make sure it is completely dry before moving on to the next step.
3) Lay template on the felt fabric. Fold back one corner, as seen above on the upper left, and delicately score the fabric lightly, as seen in the middle picture. Be very, very careful to not pierce the fabric. This step is only to mark a light fold on the felt so that the felt will fold correctly.
4) Once scored. Punch a hole in the upper corner.
5) Fold the pyramid into shape. Fill, if desired. Lace ribbon through the holes and secure.
DOUBLE  FABRIC KEEPER VARIATION
Extra supply: two sided interfacing.
2 fabrics: 1 cotton fabric and 1 piece of coordinating cotton felt
Needle and thread
1) Choose two coordinating fabrics: 1) fabric 2) 1 felt
2) Carefully layer fabrics on top of one another on cutting surface, place template on fabric and cut 2 identical pyramids.
3) Cut the felt piece along all of the folding edges so that there will be 4 triangles.
3) Set aside. Using the same template, cut one piece of interfacing.
4) On an ironing surface, lay the large fabric piece down, then carefully line up the interfacing layer and place on this fabric piece.
5) Now, reconfigure the small triangles pieces on top of these first two layers. (see blue fabric illustrations).
6) Iron. Once the interfacing has set and cooled you are ready to move onto the next step.
7) With a needle and thread, fold in one of the sides and close this side. Repeat with side two.
If necessary, stitch a few stitches at the bottom on side three — not too high, but just a few to help keep this open side lie more tightly.
