Our featured product of the day is a rotary cutter by Simplicity.
The rotary cutter is electric and it has a guide with measurements on it.
The guide has a slot to enable the fabric slide through before it is being cut.
Strips cut with this rotary cutter can be use as; quilting strips, bias tape and much more.
The measuring guides enable a person to know the width of the strips being cut and this will determine the size of your bias and the bias tip to use. For example, if you desire to use a bias making tip or have a single fold bias of 3/4 inches(19.05mm) in width then you will need to cut a strip of one and half (1 1/2 )inches wide. This 3/4 inches width of single fold bias can be folded to make a double fold bias.
This rotary cutter comes with different blades- straight and wavy. However, other blades and replacement blades are available.
Simplicity has another rotary cutting machine known as the deluxe rotary cutting and embossing machine
Pictures below shows the rotary cutter, being used to cut strips of fabric to make bias for the edge of a jacket.
Next post we will feature the bias maker machine; if used with this rotary cutter is awesome.
