well - i just about think this isn't for me. there must be a secret. i made a million mistakes. i can't seem to get the shape in the right place cuz i can't visualize it upside down. I finally made a plastic template and placed it each time, then flipped it and laid the fabric on top, removed the template and sewed. but there is alot of waste. i had to cut the pieces so much larger than the actual shape in order to be sure to cover.
secondly, getting the paper out is no easy task. i used typing paper. i think after this i would prefer using stabilizer and leaving it.
any suggestions would be most welcome.
