First I need to take the fastening stiches between top and bottom fabric away. Then the bottom fabric needs to be cut down.
This is how the back looks once the bottom fabric has been cut down.
Then the whole thing needs to be pressed in order to look nice and flat. Use a damp cotton or linen cloth and a really hot iron.
And this is how it looks all done. Now I'm just going to sew some glass beads and some gold thread to it and it will be done.
