is also a good example of the advantages of printing on fabric with Inklingo.
1. You only print the small triangles for this method. It goes fast.
2. Chain piece the triangles to the squares.
3. Cut on the line.
4. Press away from the big triangle.
5. Add two more squares.
6. Cut on the lines.
7. A final press and you have 4 perfect Flying Geese!
