Cut Fabrics

To make the best use of your fabrics, cut the pieces in the order that follows. Click "Download this Project" above for the patterns.To use fusible web for appliquéing, complete the following steps.

1. Lay the fusible web, paper side up, over the patterns. Use a pencil to trace each pattern the number of times indicated, leaving 1⁄2" between tracings. Cut out each piece roughly 1⁄4" outside the traced lines. To reduce bulk in the stars, cut 1⁄4" inside the traced lines and discard the centers.

2. Following the manufacturer’s instructions, press the fusible-web shapes onto the backs of the designated fabrics; let cool. Cut out the fabric shapes on the drawn lines to make the appliqué pieces. Peel off the paper backings.
