Trace letters for Fabric
. For both, place the fabric wrong side up - so you'll be marking on thewrong side with your marker. Use the disappearing fabric marker for this step!For the front of your letter, turn the
quilted side down
so that it's touching the wrong side of the fabric. Trace the letter.For the back of your letter, turn the
quilted side UP
. Trace the letter.(For symmetrical letters like "a" it does not matter, but I've messed up an "L" before and it came outbackwards.)6.
Cut Letter Fabric
. Cut approximately 1/2" around the letter tracing. The extra fabric is how youwrap the letter; these little “flaps” will actually be glued down all around the side of the letter.7. “
Notch” the Letter Fabric
. That extra 1/2" you cut ... now you want to make little cut notchesfrom that exterior JUST TO but not touching the tracing of your letter. This is how the fabric willcurve and lay flat to the shape of your letter. For the straight parts, you can notch every 1-2", for the curves and corners, notch every inch or as needed.
