I prepare my fabric for my Silhouette, with Terial Magic Stabilizing Fabric Spray. This spray allows your fabric to become stiffer, and fray-resistant which you need when working with Applique. The product is easy to apply in just 3 steps you will have your fabric treated. Terial Magic lasts but is water soluble and can be washed out if needed.
I start by cutting my fabric to size that you need for the cutting mat, but just a little bigger. I square to final size once the fabric is retreat, just in case shrinkage, which I see very little shrinkage.
