Stitch along that first edge and stop with the needle down right where the two folds meet. Lift your presser foot, and pivot to sew along the second edge.

Continue sewing around the edge of the folds until you get to the other side of the kite. Backstitch a couple of stitches and cut the thread.

Position the block under the needle in the same way as you started the stitching, with the needle down just beyond the edge of the tail fold so that the first stitch catches that side edge of the tail fold.

Stitch across the edge a place a stitch just across the side edge of the tail fold. Then backstitch a couple of stitches to hold in place. Cut thread and remove block.

Press with an iron and it's done! Use a zigzag stitch to stitch the blocks together and make it however big and in whatever shape you want. :D

Oh my gosh eddie! I am so glad you did this detailed tutorial with pictures. The tiny sheet that comes with the set was really hard to understand. I am going to try this right away too. Mine came in the mail late today. :D Woo Hoo!!

Thanks so much for everything.
