Contemporary Art Quilter Pat Pauly's random thoughts and excursions made public.
oh yeah! don't you just love it when your snip catches just one tiny bit too much and you have to redo the seam inside far enough and then things start pooching...arg!
If you use a single-edge razor blade or Very Sharp knife (like an exacto w/ #11 blade), with the fabric flat on a cutting mat, you can put the tip of the blade next to the stitching and pull AWAY from the seam. I find this leads to less difficulty than cutting toward the seam with an implement (esp. scissors, regardless of how keen and straight the blades) that blocks my vision of the stitching or may not cut all the way to the tip.-Melanie
Deb -- I have to redo things. And Melanie -- I like the idea of using the exacto knife. Thanks!
