Step 1:

Cut 2.25″ and 1.5″ wide strips from the green fabric, 1.25″ and 1.75″ wide strips from the white fabric, and 6″ wide strips from the red fabric.

Step 2:

Place the fabrics in these order from bottom to top:  1.5″ green fabric (bottom),  1.75″ white fabric, 6″ red fabric, 1.25″ white fabric, and 2.25″ green fabric (top). Then sew them together.

Step 3:

Cut a trapezoid shape (just like a triangular slice of watermelon with a flat top instead of a pointed one) from the bottom of the green fabric to the end of the pink fabric. Flip the fabric and use the slant cut to make the next one to maximize the whole fabric. Do this after every cut. Once done, you will have 10 pieces of watermelon slices. Next, sew them together.

Step 4:

Place the watermelon on top of the batting fabric, then cut the same shape but make sure to add an allowance. Cut the same size with the lining. Once done, sew the cotton fabric, batting and lining together on the edges of each fabric.

Step 5:

Cut a semi-circle on the red fabric and sew on the center bottom of the watermelon fabric. Next, cut a rectangle piece on the red fabric and sew a bias binding on the bottom of the watermelon. Next, sew a 2″ wide strip from the green fabric and sew a bias binding on the curve of the watermelon.
