  • 2. Beginning on left house pattern, cut fabric strip large enough to cover one drawn section adding 1/2" to all sides. Use craft knife to cut along traced line on plastic-foam board, being careful to not cut through. Position fabric strip on section; use butter knife to push fabric edges down into cut lines. Alternate fabric prints as you work, repeating process for each drawn section on pattern. See Photos 2-4.
