Ladybug Cut Step 4

Some have asked exactly how do I cut the patchwork pieces into the Ladybug shape. So here is the picture process:) It is very simple.
First, fold the pleated patchwork in half like so.





Second, place the template over the folded patchwork. The center of pleat is where the fold line on the template should be. Make sure that the top of the template is placed at the top of the pleat.











Finally, I like to use a rotary cutter to cut around the template. After I cut both sides I even make sure that each half of the outer shell lines up properly. Let me know if you have any more questions! Happy sewing everyone!
