Let's Bake Sew Along...A Little Bit More About Cutting!!



Well hi there!
We are EXACTLY one week away 
from the start of the 
Let's Bake Sew Along
using my latest collection
Bake Sale 2!


For those of you who 
have your kits...YaY!

I hope you've been having fun
 playing with all of the prints...


And getting them all cut and 
into your labeled block bags:)

If you missed last weeks post about
 how to join, about the kits, 
about the supplies needed and cutting...
and check it out!


Today I want to talk to you about
 cutting and marking
 a few pieces of the 


There are a few pieces in
 some of the blocks 
that we will be marking directly
 onto the Sew-In Interfacing 
instead of using the 

These shapes are various sizes
 of rectangles and are easily marked 
using a pencil and a ruler:)


The first rectangle is for the
Rolling Pin block.
Mark a 1 1/2" x 8" rectangle 
onto the interfacing and 
cut a 1/4" seam allowance around it:)



Next is for the Cocoa block...
and the Milk Bottle block.
Trace a 2" x 3" rectangle 
and a 
2 1/4" x 5 1/4" rectangle.
Cut a 1/4" seam allowance 
around both.



For the Cannisters block trace a
 3" x 4 1/4"
 and a 
3 1/2" x 5" 
rectangle.
Cut a 1/4" seam allowance 
around both.



For the Layer Cake block
 trace a 1 1/2" x 4" 
and a 
2" x 5 1/2" 
rectangle.
Cut a 1/4" seam allowance 
around both.



All of these rectangles 
of course have a 
coordinating fabric piece 
to go with them.

The yellow eggbeater print 
that goes with the larger rectangle
 should have a 2 1/2" x 6" piece cut.

If you haven't cut that piece...
do it now and add it to your 
Layer Cake block bag:)


The last rectangle to trace 
onto the interfacing is a
 5" x 7" 
for the dishtowel hanging 
over the oven door 
in the Stove block.


I had you cut the red gingham 
for that 6" x 8" 
just to give you a 
little more room 
to center the gingham 
exactly where you want it 
because the gingham on both sides
 and also along the bottom 
will need to be centered when sewing 
because of the Chicken Scratch 
stitching we will be doing there.


*FYI*
If you participated in my 
Sweetie Pie Sew Along
you will remember this 
Quilty Zip Pocket 
 that I made to hold my 
Fruit Salad Sew Simple Shapes:)

I just wanted to let you know
 that the Let's Bake ones
 fit inside perfectly as well...
just in case you want to 
whip another one up!



for the tutorial:)


I also did a tutorial for my 
Quilty Zip Bag 
using my Calico Day's Fabric and
 BLOOM Sew Simple Shapes...
and is modeled by my 
cutie pie grand daughter Sophie:)

This one will work 
just as well to hold the 
Let's Bake Sew Simple Shapes.

for the tutorial:)

I'll meet you here next week 
for the kick off...
I'm sew excited!!
