1. Lay your fabric out in front of you with the selvages together, and away from you, and the fold towards you.
2. Then fold the fabric again (taking the fold up 1" shy of the selvages). Now your fabric is four layers thick. Make sure that both of the folds, and the selvages all line up with lines on your cutting mat to ensure that everything is straight.
3. Now you can lay your 12-1/2" long ruler across the width of fabric and cut! Trim a small amount (to the first line on the cutting mat) off of the left side to square everything up and give you a fresh edge to cut from ~ and you're ready to go!
