I thought this site had nice, clear directions and pictures. They kept it simple.
Hope it helps.

Marynel and several others are quite good at giving instructions and I am sure they will be along to help.

Hang in there Karen, the calvary is coming!

just got finished responding to you on the other site. I use the Mary
Ellen Hopkins method. For geese, use a rectangle. You already know
that you should add 1/2" to the size you want. That's for seam
allowances. A finished goose is 2x as wide as it is tall. For the
Sky, you use 2 squares. Each one sould be the size of the RAW goose
height (actually, I cut mine a hair bigger than that). Mark a
diagonal on each square. Put one square face down on top of the goose,
matching sides together. Sew on the marked line. Fold the square on
the line and press. Do the same thing for the other side. If you are
concerned about the added bulk, cut away the middle layer of sky
fabric. (MEH threatens people who cut away more than that.)

example, for a 6"x3" (finished) flying goose, use a 6 1/2 x 3 1/2"
rectangle and 3 1/2 (or 3 5/8") squares. The 'extra' fabric you use is
worth it for your peace of mind. Life is too short to be tat
frustrated. I know that I was before I learned this method.
