OH FISKARS ROTARY CUTTER....WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE!!?!?!?!
Last month at our weaving workshop, our presenters extolled the virtue of the rotary cutter when dealing with fabric. One of the biggest pains about fabric weaving is all the prep work for the teacher.....but this baby works like a dream!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It isn't cheap, but if you have your coupons...or go on a sale day...it is easy to find it 30 to 50 % off!!! I think I got the cutter & mat for $13 with tax!!
Ok friend, I failed you if I never shared a rotary cutter for fabric weaving!! I also use Crayola washable (the gel ones for dark) markers to mark fabric (it has ALWAYS washed completely out) Elmers washable school glue can be used instead of water soluble glue if you soak in cold water before you wash, it can be used for batik as well. I use freezer paper for stencil making....those are most of my other tricks that I can not live without when dealing in fabrics, just in case I had not shared them and they would make anything you do easier!ReplyDelete

Thanks for sharing! I love a useful tool!ReplyDelete
I just found your blog and will be sharing it with our neighborhood Twig Group. I'm new to this but there are apparently over 4000 of these groups nationwide that put together art kits for children's hospitals. I'm hoping to get inspiration for future projects.ReplyDelete
