The first section of Big Little George can be found two posts ago and progress shots can be posted in the Flickr group here. Time to get pointy. Cut out the A template and choose fabrics for the points as well as one or more background fabrics.
TOP TIP: you cannot use the same piece of paper that you cut your B templates from as the templates overlap so you need to print four more at this point.
You are going to follow exactly the same process as with the B strip but note that you start on the left this time. It's not catastrophic if you start on the right but I alternate so that seams point in different directions when you join A and B. Remember, the finished thing will be a reverse of what's on the template so A1 will be on the right rather than the left. Here is what we are aiming for.
1. Start with scrap of background fabric bigger than the background wedge next to A1. Pin, glue or just hold it to the back of the paper, right side facing away from the paper, making sure it covers the whole of the first background wedge shape all the way to the dotted seam allowance line and the edges of the paper template. Then pick your first triangle fabric and pin or hold it against the first dotted seam line for A1.
2. Sew along the seam line using a short stitch.
3. Fold the triangle fabric over and press.
4. Trim the triangle fabric roughly making sure it covers the whole of A1 all the way to the dotted seam lines and the edges of the paper template.
5. Now add the next background wedge, lining up along the dotted seam allowance line, right side facing towards the paper.
6. Sew the next seam along the solid line, flip, press, trim and onto the next one. Continue in this way, adding a background wedge then a coloured triangle then a background wedge then a coloured triangle until the whole template is covered.
7. Cut away excess fabric along the lines of the paper template. Tear paper along sewing line perforations. This time you will have tiny little triangles of paper to remove as well - tweezers can help with these. Remove any excess facial hair at the same time - at my age this can creep up on you and needs a close watch. Really just testing to see whether anyone has read this far. And VOILA - you have Big Little George's pointy bits.
