I’ve had some confusion about the kite template for the Maple Leaf point on Moda Bake Shop tutorial.
There is a picture of the template which essentially is a line drawing of the template. It is towards the bottom of the post, right where the part about making the point is. You can right click on the image and save as on your computer. I have it here too. When you are printing it out, make sure you are not changing the scaling of the image or it won’t come out the right size. There is a 1″ block you can check for accuracy.
If you are still having problems with it, you can make your own template.
Start with a 4 ½” square.
Measure inside the square ¼” on the left side and the bottom side.
On the ¼” line make these measurements:
On the left side measure 2 ¼” and place a dot
On the bottom measure 2 ¼” and place a dot
From the top and right corner, measure in ¼”.
Connect the dots from the top right corner and left side dot. Draw a line.
Connect the dots from the top right corner and bottom dot. Draw a line.
This drawn line is essentially where you want your seam to end up. Now we need to draw the cutting line. From the two lines you have drawn connecting the dots, measure over ¼” and draw a parallel line.
Cut on these last lines you have drawn. This is your kite template.
I really hope this helps. I adore this pattern and would love for it to be useful for you. I would also love to see if you make one of the oversized maple leaf throws yourself. Please do share!!
