How to Die Cut 3" Squares:
For best cutting results, position fabric on the lengthwise grain (straight of grain) as it goes under the roller.
- Cut a 9 1/2" strip across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 3 1/2" widths. Place on selected blade and cut. Cut 33 squares across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 99 squares.
