Cut Fabrics

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

    To use fusible web for appliquéing bird body and wing shapes, complete the following steps.

 

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

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