There are a lot of home décor projects that require cutting large panels of fabrics, such as curtains, throws, and tablecloths. When you're short on space, this can be a bit of a challenge. So here's a little folding-and-cutting trick to make it easier, faster, more compact ... and actuallybaby pillow set, more precise. Remember making paper snowflakes as a kid? You fold, fold, fold, and then cut, cut, cut. Same basic concept, but without the swiss cheese effect. Grab your rotary cutter and mat and let's slice!

For these instructions, we're going to pretend we need one finished panel 50" long x 40" wide. We've purchased 1? yards of 45" wide fabric, which translates to 54" x 45".

Fold the fabric in half widthwise, selvedges together. So the folded piece now measures 22?" x 54".

Measure and cut 50" in length. You could either measure down 50" from the top or up 4" from the bottom. Place your ruler and cut through both layers with your rotary cutter.

Pick up your folded and cut piece, and fold it in half again – this time lengthwise so it is now 22?" x 25".

And, then in half one more time, in the same direction, so it is now 22?" x 12?". It's almost like you're folding a bed sheet to put it neatly away in your linen closet – in half and then in half again. Be precise about your folds.

Lay your neatly folded fabric piece back down on your cutting surface. As you remember from above, the finished width we originally needed was 40". However, because we already folded the fabric in half and that fold is still there, we actually need to measure half that amount, or 20".

Measure 20" over from the original folded edge, mark a straight vertical line, place your ruler and cut.

Unfold it all, and you have a 50" x 40" panel.

Now ... to push your ability to imagine to the next level, let's say the desired finished result is TWO panels 50" x 15".

Follow all the steps above until you get to the final cut. At this point, slice off the fold first. Just slice off a small amount, like ?" to an 1". Then, measure from that cut line 15" over, and make a second slice. Voilá, two pieces 50" x 15"!

We don’t know where we would be without duct tape, the ultimate solution for many a seeming disaster. Just when we think we’ve imagined its possibilities, a friend emailed an article from the South Africa Times’?about a bush pilot in Alaska who neglected to clean his 1958 Piper Cub after a long fishing trip. The fishy aroma attracted a grizzly bear who chewed and clawed the wood-and-fabric plane apart?(as well as its tires)?trying to find the source of the delicious smell, then went on its way.

This is a great project to do with your kids. ?Make custom key chains by?transferring?images onto wood. ?I’ve seen tutorials out there that use gel medium to do this, but I wanted to find an?alternative, as not everyone may have gel medium at home. ?I found that Mod Podge works just as well.
