Use A Rotary Cutter For Paper Patterns (Video)

I’m not a big rotary cutter user. I suspect it’s just because I haven’t had enough practice and I don’t feel entirely comfortable with them, because I know people who are DIE-HARD fans of rotary cutters!

Enter Meg Healy, seamstress, fashion designer, and online editor of BurdaStyle. Meg loves rotary cutters, and she’s got a great tip for cutting sewing patterns quickly.

Watch here…

Denise:

 

Hey everyone,

 

I’m here with Meg Healy from BurdaStyle, and she has a fantastic tip for anyone sewing with a pattern. So, if you’re working with a paper pattern that you bought at the store or if you’ve downloaded a PDF pattern and you’re working with that.

 

Meg:

Yeah. So the best thing to do and the most fast way to cut the pattern pieces out of the paper is to actually use a dull rotary blade that you’ve used on fabric previously – and actually, have a separate rotary blade for paper. And you just simply cut out all the pattern lines from your paper using a dull rotary blade. And it literally cuts your time in half.

 

Denise:

That’s perfect. That’s what we’re looking for; we want to have everything fast and easy.

 

Meg:

Exactly.

 

Denise:

So you have a separate one–

 

Meg:

For paper.

 

Denise:

For paper.

 

Meg:

And then one for fabric as well, because you don’t want to mix the two.

 

Denise:

Of course.

 

Meg:

And then – if, yeah, you always want to cut out the paper patterns first, before you lay out your fabric. So you’re not dulling your fabric blade as you’re cutting the paper–

 

Denise:

Awesome.

 

Meg:

–and the fabric.

 

Denise:

Great. Thanks so much, Meg.

 

Meg:

You’re welcome.

 

Denise:

Thanks.

 

Meg:

Bye.
