Fussy-cutting is so popular! It's a great way to showcase favorite fabrics and unique motifs in your project. Here are some things to consider before fussy-cutting for your next project.

Fussy-cutting tips:

  • Use a ruler designed for fussy-cutting or make a window template from cardboard to center your design.
  • Remember that your fabric will lose 1/4" all the way around your cut piece for the seam allowance, so don't cut your design too close!
  • You use more yardage when fussy-cutting, so plan on buying more than your pattern calls for.
