Using your small sharp scissors or a craft knife, cut a small
hole in the middle of one of the applique shapes, then use that hole
to cut out the entire middle of the shape. You can go as close as
1/8 inch to the edge of the stitched dieline as you like.
Important! If your scissors or knife is not sharp enough, you
might push your design out of your hoop instead of cutting through
your fabric, so take care to do it gently with a sharp object!
