Rotary Cutting Machine

First off, I want to tell you all – if I have a link or photo that’s not working, please don’t be afraid to send me an email or leave a comment (I generally check my post after it’s up, but sometimes, if I’m in a hurry, I forget)! I noticed that my picture of my Field Bag zipper from yesterday’s post wasn’t showing up. I’ve fixed it now, but thought I would repost it here!

Last night, I made the yards of piping required for the Field Bag…. it gave the the perfect excuse to try out my Rotary Cutting Machine.

I usually dread making bias tapes or cording because I really dislike having to do all the cutting and measuring – it’s not that it’s difficult, but I really don’t like having to fiddle with all that material and making sure that it’s even, etc. I suppose I won’t have an excuse any longer, this is a cool little machine! After adjusting the pressure of the rotary cutter and the width the machine would cut the fabric, I slid my material through the guide (which helps keep your fabric cutting the same width each time) and the machine did the rest. I had enough bias strips to make my piping in just a minute!
The machine itself is lightweight and is pretty quiet considering it’s feeding the material through the machine and cutting it. It comes with two blades (one that produces a straight edge and another that is pinked), although I read that there will be more released in the coming months. Overall, it’s a fun machine to use (I love gadgets anyway) and makes the whole process of cutting strips of fabric a breeze. It’s not a necessary notion to have in your sewing room, but it sure is a handy one to have! By the way, Simplicity’s Rotary Cutter is available at Joann’s and it looks as if you can use your coupon with this machine.
Edited to add: It looks as if I did have a comment on the photo not working, but it appears that my notices for site comments are going into my ‘spam’ folder at the moment. I think I’ve fixed it, but if I haven’t sent you an email back, I apologize!

    That is so cool! I saw that in JoAnn’s last week and wondered how well it worked. I’ll be adding that on my long ‘Must Have’ list!

    Yep – I think I NEED one of those rotary cutting machines! ( I have done some rug-hooking in the past, and cutting strips is a big chore.) But your link actually shows a Simplicity Bias Tape Maker instead. Heck, Maybe I need one of those, too, ha-ha.

    After reading about the Simplicity Rotary Cutter, I was interested. This evening my DH & I went to JoAnn’s & I was ready to use my 40% off coupon to buy it. Well, it was on sale for $10.00 off the regular price of $89.00. They wouldn’t let me use the coupon for 40% off the regular price since it was already on sale. I wonder if that will continue to be the case. I know it’s a lot cheaper than that on line so I didn’t buy it. Will continue to ponder whether I really want it or go ahead & order it from somewhere else.
