APS Classroom Store

The APS Classroom Store has many die-cuts you can use on the premises. I recommend applying your paper-backed fusible to the fabric before you arrive. Yu need at least a 5" x 6" rectangle of fabric for small dyes. Place the die foam-side-up on the tray, lay the fabric paper-side-up on the foam, push the die up to the roller, and crank the handle. There is no cost unless you use their consumable materials, such as laminate, copy paper, copy ink, or construction paper.

Here's the pattern for Gridlock. You could substitute cream and red for a neutral background and scraps, or two coordinating colors.


Here's a pattern I designed for the Avalon collection from "In the Beginning Fabrics".

These are the templates.
