(Print the template on paper, but make sure in your printer setup the print does not adjust the size. Cut the shape out with ‘paper’ scissors along the dotted line. Then, lay the template on top of the fabric, and use your acrylic ruler to cut the shape out. Place the 1/4″ line on your ruler to the solid line on the template, this will give you an accurate cut, then if you were to line the ruler edge to the dotted line. Don’t lift your ruler until all sides are cut, simply rotate the ruler.)
