Cut Fabrics

Cut pieces in the following order. Click on "Download this Project" for pattern pieces. (Patterns A through D are foundations for paper piecing and will be used in Prepare Foundations.) Make paper templates of patterns E through J by tracing each pattern on a sheet of paper and cutting out on drawn lines. To make a complete Stocking Body Pattern, first tape together a few sheets of paper. Then trace patterns E, F, and G, matching up their dotted lines.
