Cut Fabrics

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

To felt wool, machine-wash it in a hot-water-wash, cool-rinse cycle with a small amount of detergent; machine-dry it on high heat and steam-press.

To use freezer paper for cutting appliqué shapes, complete these steps.

1.  Lay the freezer paper, shiny side down, over patterns. Trace each pattern the number of times indicated in cutting instructions, leaving 1⁄2" between tracings. Cut out freezer-paper shapes about 1⁄4" from drawn lines.

2. Using a hot, dry iron, press freezer-paper shapes, shiny sides down, onto the right side of designated fabrics; let cool. Cut out fabric shapes on drawn lines. Peel off freezer paper.
