Cut Fabrics

Cut pieces in the following order.
Download the project for pattern pieces. To make full A and B patterns, tape together the sections, matching the dots on the pattern sections.

To use fusible web for appliquéing, complete the following steps. (Patterns are already reversed for fusible web.)

1. Lay fusible web, paper side up, over patterns. Use a pencil to trace each pattern the number of times indicated in cutting instructions, leaving 1/2" between tracings. (You may want to trace more pieces than indicated so you can mix and match pieces while arranging appliqués.)

2. Cut out each fusible-web shape roughly 1/4" outside traced lines.

3. Following the manufacturer’s instructions, press fusible-web shapes onto wrong side of solid black; let cool. Cut out fabric shapes on drawn lines. Peel off paper backings.
