MODULE 1 • Fabric Prep

Step Description
1 For this lesson you will prepare 2 pieces of plaid fabric that will match when sewn together. One piece will measure 7″ in the width grain x 7 ½” in the length grain. The second piece will measure 8 ½” in the width grain x 7 ½” in the length grain. This piece is wider so that you will have enough fabric width for matching purposes.
