What advice would you give someone starting this project? Any sewer will know the most important part of making anything is MEASUREMENTS. In my attempt to make this Indoor Awning, I measured over and over again....For instance , I measured the inside of the cupboards and noted 41 inches exactly, This was perfect, a 45 Width of fabric is perfect, enough for side seams. I also noted before I cut my fabric, I had someone assist me to fold the top for the pocket seam and then we stretched out the fabric to the fold line where it will be draped and allowed for an extra 4 inches....Always easier to cut then be short. This allowed for a perfect drape of the awning part. Also when you are placing letters, be sure to find your centre, by folding your fabric in half and place your centre letter first and work from right to left. This will ensure you have your appliqu words perfect. YOU will need some like of fusible interfacing, if you do not have this, it will bottom out like a hammock. I have taken plenty of photos 19 in total, follow my directions and you too will get perfect results. I am here if you need any help... Under Cover with Samm
