Cut Fabrics

Cut pieces in the order that follows. Click on "Download this Project" for pattern pieces. Add 3⁄16" seam allowances when cutting out appliqué pieces F and G. To felt wool, machine-wash it in a hot-water-wash, cool-rinse cycle with a small amount of detergent; machine-dry on high heat and steam-press. To use freezer paper for cutting appliqué shapes, complete these steps.


1.    Lay freezer paper, shiny side down, over patterns. Trace each pattern the number of times indicated. Cut out freezer-paper shapes just outside 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.
