    background fabrics This is a piece I have screen printed on top of a hand dye Simple is good too If you are in need of Easy choose fabrics with a Right and Wrong side Put your mat next to your machine and keep the work on it as you go Cut the piece in half from bottom to top I use a rotary cutter but no ruler if you are unsure of your lines a ruler is permissible Cut branches and sub branches The number and angles are up to you and your trees will not be quite like mine They are like handwriting Space the pieces apart a little on the mat to see how the tree will work This stage is scary but the absolute worst that can happen is that you start again with another bit of fabric Choose your Tree fabrics and cut some strips I generally cut about 1 to 1 1 2 inches wide not forgetting that you will need a wider piece for the trunk This is a stripe print glazed cotton I have had for ages I have torn strips but don t recommend this not all fabrics will do this
