Instructions:

Step 1:

Get one of the 2-inch strips and cut it into a 6″ x 2″ rectangle. From the background fabric, cut 2 pieces of 2″ squares.

Step 2:

Draw a diagonal line from one corner to another on both background squares. Place on both ends of the strip making a trapezoid and pin in place. Sew right on the diagonal lines. Finger press the seams and cut the excess tip using scissors or a rotary cutter. Make sure not to cut on the stitching part. Make another one of this piece.
