- Start by cutting "shreds" of cheese. I used my rotary cutter, and they're about 1/4 inch think...but I just eyeballed it. No measuring. I cut the strips you see here in 1/2 or 1/3 to make them shorter.
- Arrange your cheese, so that it looks good and is overlapping in random looking ways. You want there to be some overlap and some open spaces. You could make one thing of shredded cheese the size of your whole pizza or make several smaller ones. I opted for smaller ones, so they could double for taco cheese easier later. I also arranged the "shreds" on top of a couple of randomly cut pieces of felt to serve as anchors to help hold the whole thing together.
- I made three different shredded cheese clumps trying to find the best way. Ultimately I think my favorite way was to use my free-motion presser foot to machine sew all over the place to hold the shreds together, but I made an effor to sew along the shreds as much as possible. (This one is shown sewing it with the stablizer mentioned below...I don't necessarily recommend the stabilizer because it's a pain to pull off after, but worth a try if you're having a hard time the other way.)
