Are you planning to add tiny details to your next sewn stuffed toy? Then this video tutorial on Cutting Small and Complex Shapes from Fabric is just what you need!

From the blogger: "Tracing small, complex shapes on fabric can be a nearly impossible task at times due to the tendency for pattern pieces to shift during the tracing process. Cutting pieces cleanly can pose an even bigger problem, particular with round shapes like circles. This step-by-step video tutorial will show you how to quickly adhere your pattern pieces to fabric using tape and cut them out precisely. This skill is especially useful for cutting shapes from felt."

This blogger has got the most incredible ideas on how to do a bunch of great things this video is on how to cut out small pieces. She transfers the pattern on a heavier paper and then tapes it right on the fabric and cuts away. She has a video to show you how it is done. I love her videos.
