Now it’s time to try out the new templates.
Cut fabric into strips wide enough to accommodate the template, with a little to spare.
Lay an acrylic ruler on top of the template, aligning on seam allowance.
(You may notice in the photo above the ruler extends 3/8″ beyond the seam allowance. Quite frankly, I have “man hands,” and I appreciate a slightly wider seam allowance.)
Because of the sandpaper on the back of the template, you can slide the ruler around without the template sliding around too. Trim along all sides of the template (and don’t forget to press the rotary cutter blade into the fabric within the seam allowance to notch before removing the template).
Turn the template upside down, and position along the strip of fabric.
Rinse and repeat . . .
