1. Using Heat n Bond Craft Heavy Weight fusible interfacing, place the rough side of the Fusible Interfacing onto the back (wrong side) of material to be bonded. Cover with a lightweight, dry pressing cloth. Press and hold iron with medium pressure for 10-15 seconds. Repeat by lifting iron to a new area and pressing, slightly overlapping the previous area until the entire surface is bonded.
2. Cut (2) - 6 1/2" x 6 1/2" squares EACH of (2) contrasting fabrics. This is a total of (4) fabric squares. Remove the paper back from EACH of the squares and fuse (2) contrasting squares together with right sides out. Make (2) total. You will have a (2) firm, 2-tone fabric square.
3. Using your ruler and rotary cutter, square off the prepared double-sided fabric square to 6" x 6". Sub-cut (6) 1" x 6" strips. Repeat with both squares of a total of (12) strips. Note: they are all the same 2-sided color strips, so you will need to separate them into (2) piles of 6-strips with each color flipped to the top as shown.
