Phase 2 - The kite

Big smile time, for the white and red it's a matter of tracing the printouts (with the material stretched out) and cutting out, I don't hot-cut these as all the edges will be hemmed.  For the black, I cut around the printout, laid it on top of the material and traced around the edge.  So here we have one half of the wing laid out and the other side piled up ready.  I'd usually plough straight in to the construction now but..... I'm putting an appliqué design on.

I've gone for a black design, firstly I made a template, stuck the paper printout on to card and cut it all out:

Next job to trace on to the black material and hot cut it all out using my trusty gas soldering iron.
