Cut Fabrics

Cut pieces in the following order. Click on "Download this Project" above for pattern piece. To use fusible web for appliquéing the Handle Pattern, complete the following steps.



1. Lay fusible web, paper side up, over the Handle Pattern. Leaving 1⁄2" between tracings, use a pencil to trace the pattern eight times. Cut out each fusible-web shape roughly 1⁄4" outside traced lines.

2. Following manufacturer’s instructions, press each fusible-web shape onto wrong side of designated fabric; let cool. Cut out fabric shapes on drawn lines. Peel off paper backings.
