MODULE 1 • Lesson Prep

Step Description
1 This lesson is in French piping. I am going to show you how to cut the bias strip first for the piping.
2A I have prepared my pattern. I have marked my bias strips and they are 1 ½” (3.8cm) in width.
2B And, I have my fabric sandwiched between two pieces of paper and then pinned them together. It just makes it easier for cutting.
