Do you have one of your own? Trace each of the parts of that onto newspaper, along with seam allowance, and use that for a pattern.

Trace the front part, then kinda double it... make a reverse of it and attatch them. Does that make sense? So it's like if you've unfolded a sleeve. I make very little sense.

yep, but kinda reverse one of them... if that makes sense. So it's the front of the sleeve and the back and they're mirror images of eachother but they're joined... does that make any sense?
