General Directions for the Seminole Sampler

Strip #8
Seminole Strips # of Strips Width to Cut Strips
Light 2 1-3/4"
Medium 2 1-3/4"
Dark 2 1"
Bridging Strips # of Strips Width to Cut Strips
Light 1 1-1/4"
Medium 1 1-1/4"

Sew the Seminole Strip sets as shown below. Press in one direction. You will have two sets.

Do not fold the fabrics to cut the segments. Lay the strip so that the light color is on the top edge. Cut your angle from bottom left to top right. You do not want a mirror image. Cut into 1-1/2" segments at a 45 angle.

Place a small mark 1-3/4" down from the top of the light segments on the right side of the fabric. You can also use a ruler to measure each piece as you sew it. Step each segment down this 1-3/4".

Press the seams in one direction.

You will need to straighten the side edges as described in lesson two.

Bridging Strips:

Mark a line 3/4" above and below the design. Sew a light bridging strip to the bottom of the strip and a medium strip to the top.


Try turning every other segment 180 for a different look.

Seminole Sampler Strip of the Month
Month #8 Project

Rotary Cutter Case

Finished size: 4-1/2" x 8" (Will fit most rotary cutters)

You will need:

  • 1 Seminole strip 20" long by any width (If your strip is not long enough, then add strips to one of the short edges.)
  • Strips of fabric to coordinate with Seminole strip
  • Lining fabric 5" x 20"
  • Piece of fleece or lightweight batting 5" x 20"

Add enough coordinating strips to either side of the Seminole Strip to make a piece of found fabric about 5" x 20".

Layer this piece with the fleece or lightweight batting in the following order:

  1. Batting on the bottom
  2. Lining with right side up
  3. Seminole strip with right side down.

Option: Angle or Round one short edge on all 3 layers. This will be for the flap.

Sew around all 4 sides with a 1/4" seam. Leave an opening along the straight edge for turning. Turn right side out and slipstitch opening closed.

Fold short straight edge up about 8" and pin in place. Topstitch around all sides about 1/4" from the edge forming a pocket and flap. Topstitch again this time 1/8" from the edge.

Add a Velcro or snap closure and enjoy your stylish carrier for your Rotary Cutter.

You can easily adjust the width of this case so that you can make it just the right size for your favorite rotary cutter.
