  • On the main body piece, stay stitch 1/4" from all edges.
  • Using the stay stitch line as a guide, turn and press the 1/4" to the wrong side, on all edges.
  • On the 27" edges, turn under 1" to enclose the raw edge.
  • Press the 1" hem in place.
  • Pin in place and stitch the hem by sewing as close to the 1/4" turned under edge as possible.
