Cutting Your Fabric – English Paper Pieced Crown Sewalong

It’s officially day 1 of the English Paper Pieced Crowns sewalong and we’re kicking off with cutting your fabric.

You might want to take a look back at the Introduction and choosing fabric early bird blogs and videos if you’re new to the sewalong.

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:

Biggest tips

  • 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.
