AQ Cutting Mat Required: GO! Cutting Mat, 5 in. x 10 in. 2 Pack (12.7 cm x 25.4 cm) Item 55202

How to Die Cut Butterfly Shapes:

Apply fusible web product to the wrong side of the fabric, following manufacturer’s instructions, before cutting for fusible appliqué.  Place fabric on die right sides together to cut pairs.

  • Upper Wing: Cut and fuse 4 5/8" x 4" rectangles. Layer on selected blade and cut. Cut 10 upper wings across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 70 upper wings. 
  • Lower Wing: Cut and fuse 4 3/8" x 3 7/8" rectangles. Layer on selected blade and cut. Cut 10 lower wings across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 80 lower wings. 
  • Body: Place scraps on blade and cut.

Die Tips: 

  • With some fabrics, after cutting, a thread or two will remain where die blades meet. Snip threads with scissors. 
  • Blades on some dies are positioned at an angle.  Align fabric to edge of shape, not edge of die board. 
  • Use good quality fabric to reduce fabric stretch. 
  • It's always a good idea to test cut one shape before cutting many shapes to ensure fabric orientation is correct.
