On Sunday I treated myself to a rotary cutter and mat, today was the first chance I had to try it out. I decided to make a simple A-line skirt that I’d seen in Sew magazine.
I was all ready with my measurements, fabric, rotary cutter and mat but couldn’t understand why my cutter didn’t rotate. After much googling and watching You Tube I discovered much to my surprise how to use it. It wasn’t like a circular saw after all!!
But, I love it!!! Loads!!!
I made my skirt in an hour and here it is, modelled by Gertrude….
Great job! Glad you got the hang of thw rotary cutter.
Thankyou! Can’t wait to use it again!
Happy New Year! 😃
Nice work! Now that you have started to use it you’ll love it. I love the mat even more though, I now have two I’ve stuck side by side on top off my cutting table, makes a wonderful work area. Happy sewing
Thanks, can’t believe how quick it makes cutting out. When I bought it u thought I’d use it for non-dressmaking projects, but now after using it I’m hoping I’ll be able to use it for everything!
Happy New Year!! 😃

so the rotary cutter does not rotate?
It dies but not on its own, as you apply downward force and push it sling it rotates and cut. I wrongly imagined it would spin round like a circular saw! It works like a pastry or pizza cutter.
