1. From the outer, lining and wadding cut 1 rectangle from each measuring 28 cm x 8 cm.
6. Check the size of your piece of quilting against your mug. You may need to trim it down a little.
7. If you are using bias binding, cut 2 pieces 30 cm long and 2 pieces 10 cm long. Now skip the rest of this step and go to Step 8!
If you are making your own binding, cut 2 strips of fabric 30 cm x 4 cm and 2 strips 10 cm x 4 cm.
Fold in half and press again.
You should now have a strip of fabric with the raw edges folded up inside.
Repeat for the other strips.
