The easy way is to make a template out of any kind of sturdy paper. Lay the paper out leaving two inches between each cut out. Then you can measure how long and how wide it would be to lay out on material. Note: your material will come in different widths. It's just a gross measurement and you will have more material than you need but better too much than to little. If you want to have a more precise cut, take your numbers to the fabric store and they will cut what you need.
