Rotary cutting patchwork
The rotary cutter was designed to cut through multi-layers of fabric, quickly and accurately, allowing you to get to the fun part of sewing your project, whether by hand or by machine. The various styles of rotary cutter all basically do the same job, but the different sizes of blade, equate to the number of layers they will cope with.
