How to Die Cut 1 1/2" Strips:
- 1 1/2" Strips:Â Cut 8" wide strips across the width of fabric to cut five, 1 1/2" strips. Position fabric on die so fold of fabric is perpendicular to cutting blades and will roll through the cutter first. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 22 strips.Â
- 1 1/2" Squares:Â Start with a 1 1/2" strip aligning it across the die board with the 90Â° guide line. Fanfold into 8" widths. Cut 25, 1 1/2" squares across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 550 squares.Â
- 45Â° Diamond-2 1/8" Cut Side Edge:Â Start with a 1 1/2" strip. Align your 1 1/2" strip across the die board to the right side of the 45Â° guide line.Â
- 30Â° Diamond-3" Cut Side Edge:Â Start with a 1 1/2" strip. Align your 1 1/2" strip across the die board to the right side of the 30Â° guide line.Â
- 60Â° Diamond-1 3/4" Cut Side Edge:Â Start with a 1 1/2" strip. Align your 1 1/2" strip across the die board to the right side of the 60Â° guide line.
