Preparation for Class
Tear your fabric lengthwise, on grain, make two inch wide strips. Fast Tearing Technique is on page 2 of your pattern. I stack my ends of fabric and fold over the end of the fabric an inch and cut a slit 1/2 inch long lengthwise so when you open the fabric back out, your slit will be one inch long.
Make sure that you don't cut your slits too close to the edge, or they will tear out. If you don't like the wrong side of your fabric, then you need to press your strips in half lengthwise so when you make your rug, the wrong side of the fabric won't show.
It is to your benefit to read your pattern on the Oval Rug before class, and try to understand what you will be doing in the class.
