How to Die Cut Scallop Border Shapes:
Apply fusible web product to the wrong side of the fabric, following manufacturer’s instructions, before cutting for fusible appliqué.
TIP: Scallop borders can be cut to desired length using the lengthwise grain of fabric and placing folds at the ends of the die blade.
- Die blade is 21" long and is open on three sides to allow varied widths and fan foldng of fabric over the die blade to cut longer borders.
- Four layers of fan folded fabric (with fusible web backing) can cut up to 84" of scallop or pointed borders.
- To cut longer lengths of each scallop or pointed border, cover die blades with fabric to your desired width size. Position fabric on die so fold of fabric is perpendicular to cutting blades.
- Number of cuts per one yard of fabric will vary depending on the width of the border.
