It will be a stand-up and this is how I made it:
I cut foam core to the size I wanted and as many to get it as thick as I wanted (I think 4). Using flat head pins in the sides, I wrapped it with batting cutting out as much bulk as possible. Then pinning the sides I wrapped the sampler fabric on the back and about half way on the sides. I then did the same with the stitching. Again cutting out as much bulk as possible. I folded the corners into the sides and not the bottom which I thought would make the bottom bulky and not sit right. You can see this a little bit on the top photo looking at most corners of the piece. The ribbon should hide most of this.
Now I just need to add some ribbon to the sides and a bow at the top I am thinking of a dark red. I am also deciding if I want to get some big flat buttons to add feet to it.
That is about all for now folks!
