Next you need to create a resist, which is simply a hard copy of the shape you are trying to achieve. To make mine I simply traced the original fabric, yet there is no limit to the exact shape you can do! When creating this you just need to make sure the that the shape is simple and clear, so that when you go to cut your fabric, each layer will be consistent and recognizable.
This resist was made from a manila folder, cut 7" wide, 6" at the deepest part, 4 1/2" at the shallowest, and almost semicircular.
