Print copies of the the fan shape on lightweight or typing paper. You will be using the paper to flip and sew the fan shape. Cut the jelly rolls into approx 5″ long strips. Arrange 8 strips for each fan. (make sure your birds are going right side up!)
To use any paper foundation method or flip and sew technique, it is best to use a very small stitch. This will almost perforate the paper and be easy to tear off just like tearing a page from a tablet. Lay 2 pieces of fabric right sides together and lay them on top of the fan piece. Align the edge of the fabric along the solid line. Sew 1/4″ from the edge. Flip the fabric open and finger press. Fold the edge of the fabric back and cut using the next solid line as your guide. Add another piece of fabric right sides together and sew. (as shown below) I just started sewing from end of the fan to the other. You will notice the fan template has you start in the middle, flip and sew in both directions. Both directions will work.
I was playing around with some options. The picture below is featuring ric rac so you have a nice edge turned under with 1/2 the ric rac peeking through. Sew the ric rac on top of the fan (pictured here) I loved this.
