After all the blanks have been glued together, it's time to trace the cardboard patterns onto the vinyl, and measure, mark, and sew the stitch lines in the fabric inserts. I traced around the cardboard patterns with the Fisher silver ink pen, and drew the stitch lines on the fabric inserts with yellow tailor's chalk. I sew the center stitch line first and then sew the each line in order moving from the center to the outside of the blank. The pictures show the silver lines and also where I put witness marks and wrote instructions on the vinyl. Remember, this ink cleans right off easily so it's O.K. to do that. The first picture of the fabric insert shows the chalk lines still on the fabric, and the second shows it after I blew the excess chalk off with my air nozzle.
