Step  #3 cut shapes using the paper pattern from 1/4” plywood with jigsaw (helps when you have a handyman-like my husband) cut batting 2” bigger all the way around so that it can fold over board.

Step #4 lay fabric down, batting and plywood – fold batting and fabric to the back of the board and staple together.  NOTE: MAKE SURE TO USE THE RIGHT SIZE OF STAPLES SO IT DOES NOT GO THROUGH THE FRONT (OUCH!!!)
