Pattern Cutting Tip: Use your Rotary Cutter

By June 01, 2012 ,

hints-from-Hello-KirstiOk this was a total duuuuh moment for me, but if it took me this long to think of then, then maybe I can help someone else…
Use a rotary cutter to cut out the straight parts and gentle curves of print your own patterns, then use scissors on the rest.
You’re welcome.
Note: Be sure not to use your ‘fabric’ one. I have two different style cutters and retire my ‘fabric’ blade to my ‘craft’ one for use on paper and other junk.
