This is the tutorial I promised to post.

Since it's my first tutorial, please
bear with me
and do let me know
if you don't understand something.
I will do my best to
explain it to you.

Actually, questions will help me
improve my tutorial writing skills.

Six 43,5cm strips of Jelly Roll
Four 110x8cm belt ties
One 78x43,5cm fabric for lining
