Ta-Da Prairie Point Step by Step Instructions

 

Step #1 

 

Cut fabric strip the width of the Prairie Points you intend to make by the WOF (width of fabric).

Strip width as follows:

 

1” finished     = 5” width                  1½” finished   =  7” width

2” finished     =  9” width                 2½” finished  = 11” width

 

Step #2 

 

Trim the Prairie Point grid from the interfacing panel carefully along the outside dotted lines. A ruler and rotary cutter may make this easier.

 

Step #3 


Work on an ironing surface. Set your iron to the polyester setting. Press the interfacing using an up and down motion. Start in the middle of the panel, working  toward the edges. Hold the iron on interfacing for 8 - 12  seconds to fuse.

 

Step #4 

 

Flip material over and press again on the fabric side using a cotton setting making sure all fabric is securely fused to interfacing.

Cut on the inside dotted lines.
