The puck JoAnne made here is a little on the small side. Make your
first pucks a bit larger, because working with such small pieces of
can be tricky for beginners.
The cone is the easiest piece to make, let that be your first piece.
Jo Anne Young is going to show us how to make this plush Quilt Hopper
This is what we are making
The puck will be easier to make if you print the pattern bigger, but it
won't fit on as many quilts.
Cut out the material (2 circles and one strip per puck).
JoAnne uses a rotary
cutter for straight cuts, but scissors work just fine.
Now the material should look like the pattern.
The pattern for the top & bottom have an inner and outer circle,
with some little lines between.
The outer circle is the cut line. The inner circle is the edge of the
The lines mark the little tabs on the edge of the top & bottom that
sew to the side tabs on the edge strip.
JoAnne gets her little scissors and clips along the little lines to
To hide the seams, JoAnne is going to make the puck inside out and
then evert it to put the seams on the inside. Everting something is
turning it inside-out or rightside-out.
Face the material good side to good side (always good to good). This
way only the good side of the material will show when you evert the
Match a tab on the bottom to one end of the side tab on the edge strip,
like in the picture on the left.
Pin the tab and sew around the circle. The length of the edge strip is
the same as the circumfrence of the inner circle of the bottom, and the
tabs match up. Notice that JoAnne is using a push stick: safety first
It should look something like the picture on the right when you are
Sew the top on.
Now you have an inside-out puck with the side-seam open.
Now JoAnne everts the puck (turns it rightside out).
She uses a stick to poke the edges out.
The puck is now right-side out, the good side of the material is
showing, and all the seams are hidden.
To finish up, JoAnne stuffs the puck with batting.
Then she pins and sews the last seam.
This is what it looks like
And now we are done
