The first thing I did was create my design in an easy-to-manage size in Silhouette Studio.
Once it was all set I enlarged it to the size I wanted (Select > Pull Corner Diagonal to size).
Then I used the knife tool (circled) to slice a straight line completely across my design near where it ran off the cut area grid.
You can see I actually needed to make 3 sections to fit my complete design.
I cut and pasted the bottom half of the bunny in a second work area and moved the triangle piece from the bunny's back into an area where there was some extra cut space. It's important that after you slice your design into sections you do not resize any portion of it or it will NOT fit back together correctly.
I cut my oversized bunny stencil on freezer paper so I could get a nice crisp no-bleed stencil. (Read more on why freezer paper is the best for stencils on fabric including burlap.)
Now it's time to start putting the stencil back together. Working with one piece at a time I ironed my stencil onto the burlap. (Here it's just roughly placed on the burlap.)
You can see I will have to cut small sections of the freezer paper away - but I don't do any cutting until I get at least one of the pieces adhered to the burlap.
I finished by adding the smallest piece into place...
And now I'm ready for paint...
And here's the finished flag. (Please don't look too closely, my house clearly needs a good power washing after this winter.) :)
