2. Line up all three pieces (felt and interfacing) with felt on top. Pin all over to keep three pieces together. Fold tabs to back, making sure the ends will be caught into rick rack trim if stitching. Otherwise, glue ends of tabs to top of the back.

3. With a pencil, mark grid for rick rack following pattern above. Sew or glue sections of rick rack on grid...start with middle sections and end with one long piece forming the border. Remove pins.

4. Using the contrasting felt color and stencils, trace and cut out "Learn to Count" letters. Cut ten 1" (2.5 cm) x 1 1/4" (3 cm) rectangles. Glue letters and rectangles down as illustrated.

5. Using fabric paint, draw the rest of lettering (refer to illustration). Let dry for recommended time on paint instructions.

6. Sew on buttons in random placement for each category, catching all three layers.
