Now that I’ve started making sunflowers again, it was time to print some more shapes on fabric and cut them out.
And that brings me to a new favourite tool – the Fiskars 18mm Fingertip Rotary Cutter. It’s fabulous and makes cutting curved shapes very easy. I thought it was something when I learned to cut curves with a regular rotary cutter. Then I got one of these fingertip control rotary cutters. Now I’m never going to hesitate to cut curved pieces with a rotary cutter as the fingertip cutter makes it so accurate. No affiliation. I’m just really happy with how well this little fingertip cutter works.
You slide it on your index finger and it’s magic. Like tracing a curved template, if you look just ahead of where the cutting blade is and follow along, it makes perfect cuts every time.
I printed some more of the 6″ sunflower shapes on fabrics, ready to turn into another sunflower. The straight edges were cut with a regular cutter and ruler, but the curves were all cut with the little fingertip cutter. And this weekend I am going to get quite a few more printed on batiks so that the sunflower project box is full.
The weather really changed yesterday. In the morning it was quite warm, although very overcast. So warm that we had the air conditioning on. Then came the wind and the temperature dropped rather rapidly. It got so cool that the windows were shut and the heat was turned back on. Sounds like we’re going to have a pretty cool weekend and then the temperature will start to steadily go up.
Baxter doesn’t care what the weather does outside. He’s cozy and comfortable on his kitty tree.
