Tips

The cutting diagrams included in the pattern are for based on 40" width of fabric.  If your fabric is wider you may be able to get more cuts out of one width of fabric.  

Using the cutting diagrams - I typically keep my fabric folded, cut anything that has an even amount of cuts (remember you are cutting 2 at a time if your fabric is folded), and then unfold and cut the remaining pieces.  I also keep a highlighter nearby so I can mark off the cuts I've made in case I get interrupted or  I'm able to make extra cuts.
