HOW TO MAKE INDIVIDUAL PRAIRIE POINTS

Prairie Point 5

I recently made some cushion covers to which I added Prairie Points as embellishments. So today I thought I would show you how I approach this task. It’s really easy and looks great.¬† I make up my individual Prairie Points with 3″ squares but you can resize them larger or smaller depending on your project but I find that 3″ is a pretty good size and quite easy to manipulate.

I cut however many 3″ squares I feel I will need. Now take your 3″ square and fold it in half diagonally and press.

Now fold it again and press. You just carry on in this fashion until all you squares have been shaped and pressed.

And here’s an example of¬† what you can do with Prairie Points.
