How to Die Cut Wedge Shapes:
For best cutting results, position fabric on the lengthwise grain (straight of grain) as it goes under the roller.
- Cut a 10" strip across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 4 1/8" widths. Place on selected blade and cut. Cut nine wedges across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 27 wedges.

- With some fabrics, after cutting, a thread or two will remain where die blades meet. Snip threads with scissors.

- Use good quality fabric to reduce fabric stretch.
- It's always a good idea to test cut one shape before cutting many shapes to ensure fabric orientation is correct.
