I just recently started following the Brindille and Twig blog because I love their patterns so much. A recent post sent me to this video which is a basic tutorial on fabric cutting. The takeaway for me was less about the layout and more about the tool. I've never attempted to use a rotary cutter to cut anything but straight lines. Typically I lay my pattern out, trace with marker, then cut with scissors.
Since the video made it look so easy, I picked up a small rotary cutter for under $20 and decided to give it a try. I will tell you, I will never go back! Not only does this take less time, but it is so much more accurate.
So fun and exciting to learn something new.
