Other tools you will need
Cutting mat. Rotary cutter. Long ruler for use with a rotary cutter. A smaller ruler - easier to manoeuvre for the small cuts. Neutral coloured thread for sewing with - I like the Aurifil ne50 (this is a lovely fine 100% cotton thread, and I usually use a grey). General sewing supplies (thread snips, unpicker, pins, iron).
Before starting please note all seams are joined with a ¼” seam (unless otherwise indicated)
Also it is a good idea to read through all the instructions before starting.
