Don't you love the highwater on the right!
I truly took the lazy girl route and left them hanging while doing this project. I just live dangerously like that!
I just cut a piece of red fabric plus 8.5 inches longer than needed and 6 inches wider. Lay the fbric right sides together and just stitch it together. Iron open the seam. On each side fold over a double 1.5 inch hem. You can either use fabric glue or any other bonding method, or just stitch down the side. When I do custom panels I hand stitch or blind hem the sides, but remember, this is just the lazy girls method today. Ha! The bottom hem is a double 4 inch hem, and you can secure it the same way as the sides.
To cover up the seam where the red meets the stripes, I just used an adhesive and stuck some ric rac right there.
Here is the final product. Hope you like it.
