How do I cut out the pattern?

Cutting

Bent-handled shears allow you to cut without lifting the fabric off the table. If you are right-handed, cut with the fabric and pattern to the left of your scissors (opposite for left-handed), so you can see the cutting lines and can use your free hand to stabilize the fabric.
