I will be doing some posts about sewing as that is what my craft is all about and what I love to do.
Today's post is going to focus on the tools of the trade as we like to call them.
We need the basics like a sewing machine... I will not get into that one right now as that would be a post on its own but will start with the smaller tools we need"
Rotary cutters are a must for those that want to do precision cuts... nothing does it better. I love mine and have 3 different ones:
My full size one is a Olfa 45mm - available at any fabric shop or on line - I can not believe I use to cut all my fabric with scissors. Never again... precision cuts every time and you can cut more than one piece! I cut out 2 sets of potholders or 1 set of place mats in one cutting.

I also have a wavy blade for it but I have not used it alot - still learning but told it is very useful - so I will continue to work with it.
I also use the small rotary cutter alot when only cutting single layers -
