Cut Fabrics

Cut pieces in the following order. Click on "Download this Project" above for the patterns.

When making templates of patterns A and B, page 6, be sure to transfer dots marked on patterns to templates, then to fabric pieces. The dots are matching points and are necessary when joining pieces. Mark or clip center of curved edges on A and B pieces.

To use freezer paper for cutting applique shapes C–F, complete the following steps.

1. Lay freezer paper, shiny side down, over patterns. Use a pencil to trace each pattern the number of times indicated in cutting instructions, leaving 1⁄2" between tracings. Cut out freezer-paper shapes roughly 1⁄4" outside the traced lines. Note: The C dish base has both curved appliquéd edges and a straight edge where a 1⁄4" seam allowance has already been added for sewing into the waistline. Add a 1⁄4" seam allowance only to the curved edges.

2. Using a hot dry iron, press freezer-paper shapes, shiny sides down, onto right sides of designated fabrics; let cool. Cut out fabric shapes on drawn lines and peel off freezer paper. (Note: Leave freezer paper on F cherry.)
