Step 2

Place another piece of fabric with the right sides facing each other, pin at the center of ribbon area, as well as all the sides and including the notches. With a 3/8 inch or 1cm seam allowance, sew all around but skip over the opening and then continue until half of the side, open the fabric and add the third fabric facing the right sides together. Match the notch to the center of the elastic, then stitch right around the center of the other side. Do this to the other side. Once done, flip inside out and poke the corners, fold in the opening, and crease with your fingers. Insert and fill with poly-fil, using a double thread, slip stitch, or ladder stitch and close the gap of the opening, finish by tying a knot.
