Cut Out Body Pieces

1. Referring to Diagram 2, arrange patterns A, B, and C face down on wrong side of a fused patchwork rectangle. Using a fabric marker or pencil, trace around each template once; mark placements on the patchwork body for the pocket, ear, eye, and inside leg. Cut out pieces on drawn lines to make a patchwork A body, B inside leg, and C ear.

2. Repeat Step 1, arranging patterns A, B, and C faceup on wrong side of remaining fused patchwork rectangle to make mirror-image patchwork pieces (A reversed body, B reversed inside leg, and C reversed ear).

3. From fused light gray print lining rectangle, cut out one C ear, one C reversed ear, and four D circles.
