Introduction: How to Use a Rotary Cutter

This video provides a basic introduction to using a rotary cutter to cut perfect fabric strips for quilting (or other projects).

Let me apologize in advance for my video technique-- it was a one take deal and I think you'll get the idea.

If you have any questions, please leave a comment.

Happy cutting (and sewing),
Melissa

    I have one of these and, while I hate cutting fabric with scissors, I have yet to use it. Perhaps now I will!

    Thanx so much. I am just starting to look into doing patchwork and I didn't really have a clue how all these tools were to be used. You have taught me all. Thanx.

    I have never heard of a rotary cutter. At first I thought it was like a rotary tool with a blade on it or something.. haha. That would actually be a pretty good idea, unless the blades come off.... Nice job anyways!
