  1. Place paper piece template on wrong side of fabric. Cut fabric at least 1/4″ larger than template.
  2. Fold seam allowance over edge of template; using long basting stitches, stitch through fabric and paper. Continue basting all sides, folding fabric neatly over at corners. Tip: baste with a contrasting color thread to make removing stitches easier.
  3. To join basted shapes, place two pieces right sides together with edges and corners aligned. Whip stitch together with matching thread. Stitch with 6-10 stitches per inch, catching only edge of fabric.
  4. When all pieces are stitched together, remove basting stitches and templates. Tip: to easily remove templates, slip a crochet hook into center hole and lift out template.
