  • Step 1

    If you have not already done so, cut two rectangles 70cm × 1.1m (271⁄2 × 43in) from the two fabrics.

    Place the two fabrics right sides together. Pin and tack. Remove the pins.

  • Step 2

    Machine sew three sides by using straight stitch. On the fourth side, leave an opening of 20cm (8in) for turning out.

    Oversew the rectangles using zigzag stitch.

  • Step 3

    Snip the corners.

    Turn the throw right side out.

    Slip the cotton fleece inside.

    Close up the last side either by machine or by hand using small,
    invisible stitches.

  • Step 4

    Evenly pin the whole surface of the throw.

    Quilt to hold in place using large stitches, diagonally and crosswise.

  • Step 5

    Using tailor’s chalk, draw around the stars on to the throw. • Sew on the shapes by machine.

    Push the threads inside using a needle.

    Pull the threads free between the two layers of fabric, knot them
    and then cut the threads.
