      How To Cut Felt- It's hard to cut felt and to draw your pattern on it. The secret is Freezer Paper! Trace your pattern onto the paper. Iron it onto the felt on the highest setting without steam until it stays. Iron against the papery feeling side, the shiny side goes against the felt. Cut out your pattern with scissors and then peel off the freezer paper.

      "HOW TO CUT FELT" TUTORIAL: to cut felt easily, iron the felt onto freezer paper first. You iron on the side that feels shiny and the papery feeling side should be on top. Here's the great part: draw or trace your patterns onto the freezer paper first, or even put the freezer paper into your printer to make repeating elements or more precise designs, eg, print out the entire alphabet (use outline mode), or mass-produce shapes and icons used in children's crafts. Works great for fabrics, also!
