Make your own reusable plastic templates with iquilt online instructor Joanne Sharpe. She walks you through the process from beginning to end. Keep all your favorite shapes handy!
Additional Tip: Put a sticky velcro dot on the center of the front of your plastic template. Not only will this help you hold the template steady while tracing, you can also store your favorite shapes on your design wall so they stay in your mind while you are creating and are at your fingertips anytime you need them.
