Step 2
Choose a medium-sized shape (we chose triangles). Adjust the size according to the proportions of your garment. Select an even number to duplicate as many as you like. The more shapes you have, the more options you’ll have to create a great mosaic pattern.

Step 3
Choose a small-sized shape. Adjust the size to the proportions of your garment. Select an even number to duplicate that is more than what you selected for the medium shapes. With these smaller pieces, you can add more detail to your design.

Step 4
Choose a large-sized shape. Once again, adjust the size to the proportions of your garment. Select an even number to duplicate that is less than what you selected for the medium shapes. These will serve as anchors and focal points in your design, so you don’t need as many.

Step 5
If you’ve chosen any asymmetrical pieces, you’ll need to mirror half of the number that you selected for each size. This will allow you to create a mirrored, symmetrical design on your garment.

With a fabric of your choice, cut a square to fit the entire size of the mat.

Step 8
Select “Cut” and let your ScanNCut do its magic! Remove the mat from the machine carefully so you don’t pull any pieces from your fabric.
