  • Step 1

    First take a look at the pattern with measurements I made and check the pictures

    Cut 2x A out of the black faux leather

  • Step 3

    Pin the A pieces good sides facing

    Cut B out of the orange faux leather

  • Step 6

    Cut C,D,E, F and G out of the sturdy fabric and sew the edges as described in the measurement instructions
