Step 1: Prep your fabric rectangles. Place ‘pretty’ sides together.

Step 2: With ‘right-sides’ together; I stitched around the perimeter with a 1/4″ seam allowance. Making sure to leave a gap, to turn each moth right-side-out at a later date.

Step 3: Cut off the corners, making sure not to cut through our previously made stitches.

Step 4: Each moth was then turned right-side-out. The corners were carefully pulled out to a point (as best as possible).  Gap is pinned closed.

Step 5: Using an 1/8″ ladder-stitch; each ‘moth-gap’ was hand stitched closed.

Step 6: The steam setting on my iron was a life saver… or moth-saver! Each moth was pressed, flipped, and pressed again.  It is important to make a night clean/crisp, flat, shape to work with.

Step 7: Now it is time to pull out the sewing machine.  As much as I want to fold them all up, I need to add a little more tender, love, and care.  A stock embroidery stitch was selected with metallic thread to add filigree to the perimeter of each prepped-moth.

Step 8: Time to start folding!!!
