All About

Fussy-Cutting

Fussy-Cutting is my favorite way to add additional embellishment to a composition! It adds so much interest and depth, and it's so easy to do! Watch this video below to learn what exactly fussy-cutting is, where I've used it, and how I fussy-cut.

Fabulous Fabric is Key

When looking for fabric for fussy-cutting on your own, look for prints that have a variety of beautiful blooms, lush leaves, or delicate little critters like butterflies or birds. You want to make sure that the scale is appropriate for the size of your composition, not too small and not too big. However, oftentimes you can get away with using a large scale print by cutting into an element and making it smaller (ie. not using the entire leaf or flower). I buy a LOT of Kaffe Fassett and Anna Maria Horner fabric!
