In order for the acorn top batting to fit better you will need to trim off the batting stem at the top and trim away batting 1/4” from the bottom. Note: This is the only place you trim away the stem.


Step 6: Sewing Acorn Top

Using the same method from Step 3, place acorn tops right sides together. Then lay the batting against one of the wrong sides of the acorn tops.

The batting will be 1/4” shorter. This is where you will begin the stitching. Stitch the sides and top, but leave the bottom open for turning.

Now for the fun part! Look through your sewing machine’s decorative stitches. Choose one that can swing from side to side, such as a zigzag.

You want to be able to catch both fabrics when attaching. Stitch the acorn top to acorn bottom. Topstitch if desired.

Pro Tip: Using a fabric glue pen can keep this from shifting while you sew. Also, a Walking Foot is another tool to keep the two pieces aligned.
