It's surprisingly easy to cut shapes and patterns out of felt -and we have a technique that is much more precise than pinning, far less fuzzy then transfer pens and cleaner than chalk! And it's by far the most fun! The key is freezer paper (yes, the same paper you can wrap your food in!) and a sharp scissors.
1. First trace your pattern onto the matte side of the freezer paper.
2. Iron your freezer paper (wax side down) to your felt. The wax helps to adhere the paper to the felt.
3. Cut out your shapes. I find small scissors helpful when maneuvering around tight corners and sharp tips lend itself to clean and precise cuts.
4. Peel paper off. If you find the paper difficult to peel away from the felt -ease up on the heat or reverse the pattern when tracing. You can also reuse your freezer paper -just re-iron and cut. Perfect!
