Love Patchwork & Quilting - - ALL AT SEA -

To make a sturdy tem­plate for cut­ting out, glue a copy of each tem­plate to a piece of card. Then cut out us­ing a craft knife. Start by cut­ting all the straight edges us­ing a metal ruler.

Cut the curves start­ing from the outer edge, mak­ing two cuts that meet in the cen­tre, to cre­ate a smooth curve. When cut­ting your fab­ric, you may find it eas­ier to mark us­ing a fab­ric pen and the tem­plate, and then cut out us­ing a small ro­tary cut­ter.
