Did I tell that I have recently had a birthday? Birthdays means treats and this year it meant that I finally got my hands on:
I first heard about this about a year ago. I was not convinced until I tried to cut out lycra. It was not easy as the material is so stretchy and slippery.
As you can see I have finally managed to get around to having a play.
Lets just say I love it. It is so sharp, it cuts through the 2 layers of lycra with ease. I am able to cut accurately as the material stays flat on the table, you just run the blade around the edge of the pattern. No lifting, stretching or moving.
The only slight issue that I had was not meeting up at the corners quite, leaving the piece joined to the main material.
Oh and you can see how it also cuts through the paper pattern a bit too! 😉
As to what I am making …..more on that another time. I simply didn’t get enough done to show you today.
