It’s officially day 1 of the English Paper Pieced Crowns sewalong and we’re kicking off with cutting your fabric.
Today we’re focusing on cutting out. It seems straight forward but there are a couple of tips depending on which crown you’re sewing that will really help the next processes run smoothly. Do read on, but first:

Throughout the sewalong and until the 24.12.21 you can get 15% off the Digital pdf Crown patterns. Once you have it you can use it time and time again.
Let the fun begin!
Cutting your fabric
Once you have your 5 templates printed onto a thin card or thick paper and carefully cut out individual pieces it’s time to prepare your fabric pieces.
You need to give yourself a good 1/4” (0.6cm) seam allowance on the template.
Again I’ve gone on video to show the process please watch to gain a greater understanding:
- Keep the paper template with the numbers all facing the same way.
- Keep your pieces clipped together so you don’t get them confused.
This was a real short one today and I’ll bring you the next phase of the sewalong tomorrow on how to baste your fabric.
