    Brilliant! I really like the pattern but figured it to be way too much cutting to do and maintain accuracy. This just solves all that. Cool!

    she addresses that by saying if you starch first the layers adhere.

    Me either. That's life with dialup. Sure would be nice if someone was considerate enough to describe it.

    Maybe I missed something - Did she say how to get it to turn out exactly 4-1/2" finished for example?

    i think to get it turn out the size you want, you cut it 1/2" larger. then when you mark that 1/4" all the way around, it would give you 1/2" less as the finished size. then you would pick up the rest of the directions and go from there. i've done it 8" the way she did.

    since measuring isn't an issue after the marking of the 1/4", size doesn't matter. the import thing , i found, was the layout on the cutting mat. you need to follow those directions carefully. once you do it one time, it's yours forever.

    Try copying and pasting the link into your address bar instead of clicking on the link. Should work.
