Happy February 13th, 2014. I hope you get a treat for Valentine's Day tomorrow. Tomorrow would also have been my sweet mother's 99th birthday. Mom always received many birthday cards from family and friends. I even have many of those cards in a basket my Dad gave to me after Mom passed away. Dad just couldn't seem to throw the cards away and now I can't seem to throw them away either. Funny what we hold onto.
Listed below are pictures of a new cutter/ruler I purchased from Nancy's Notions. Also have to thank Nancy's Notions for their friendly staffer, Sharon, who took my order over the phone and their prompt service. The ruler/cutter is made by Sew Easy is called Ruler Cuter and is 4 1/2" x 27 1/2". I bought it hoping it would be easier on my hands when cutting strip pieces. I must report I am very happy with my purchase. There are videos on YouTube showing the ruler/cutter if you are interested in seeing a demonstration. I've only cut 4 layers (2 strips) at a time, but I'm pretty sure I could cut 6-8 layers at a time. Some might consider $44.99 a little pricey, but I am very pleased with its ease of use. It takes a standard 45mm rotary blade. It is easy to line up the ruler on your fabric and just push the handle to have a perfect straight strip. I would sometimes get an hourglass look on my straight strips using a regular rotary cutter. This product has eliminated that problem for me. Happy Valentine's Day to me.
Blessings to all.
