Quick Tip – Use Packing Tape for Cutting Felt Shapes

When I was first working with felt I had a heck of a time trying to get the shapes I wanted cut out precisely. I used cardboard cutouts and my trusty rotary cutter for straight lines, but anything else was a pain in the you know what. I tried everything including straight pins and disappearing ink (that didn’t disappear) fabric pens to no avail. Luckily I found this handy tutorial over on Wee Folk Art! All you need is some wide packing tape!

Cut out your paper pattern leaving a little bit of space around the cut line and tape around all the edges on top of your piece of felt.

Cut out your shape along the pattern line and admire your perfectly cut felt!
