                         Please interface all fabric before cutting. You may have a little waste, but it is a much easier way to do things.
All pattern (paper) pieces should be cut and taped together at the matching symbols, or letters. Use those pieces to cut your fabrics. DO NOT CUT THE MAIN PANEL EXTERIOR. WE WILL CUT THAT IN CLASS. Strap fabric should be cut 4” x at least width of fabric. BE SURE TO BRING ANY LEFTOVER FABRICS, AND INTERFACING, IN CASE IT IS NEEDED. If you have any questions, Robin can be reached by email at [email protected] or by phone at 570-872-2760
