The Lafayette, La guild gave really nice apple core templates to its members for our anniversary last year. They are thick see-through plastic and have a built in seam allowance. I wanted to find out if anyone knows an easier way of cutting the apple core out instead of tracing it and cutting with scissors? I tried using my rotary cutter, but on the inside curves, it runs into the plastic. I am using a regular 45 mm cutter. Since I already have the template, I donít want to purchase the quiltsmart.com method. Please help me!
