Most pieces of this pattern are measure and cut, meaning you cut the fabrics to the dimensions shown below. The number in parentheses indicates the number of pieces of each dimension you should cut. The flap fabric will be cut according to a pattern piece included in the kit. If you are using a printed fabric that runs one way, make sure the pattern runs lengthwise along the longer edge as shown below.  Please come to class with the fabric and interfacing pieces already cut according to the chart below.


If you have any trouble with cutting the pieces, please give me (Lisa) a call at Sew'N Sweep 410-848-8080 and I will be glad to help over the phone or let you know when I will be working to help in person.
