Cut Fabrics

Lay the fusible web, paper side up, over the patterns found in the PDF download. Use a pencil to trace each pattern the number of times indicated in the cutting instructions, leaving 1⁄2" between tracings. Cut out the fusible-web shapes roughly 1⁄4" outside the traced lines.

Following the manufacturer’s instructions, press the fusible-web shapes onto the wrong sides of the designated fabrics; let cool. Cut out the fabric shapes on the drawn lines and peel off the paper backings.
