OMG .... I was just sooo excited to finally get a few minutes to try out the Apple Core Template (from Etsy.com) and my new smaller rotary cutter (recommended).
I have a 5 inch template, and want to use a 6 inch charm pack from Kaffe Fassett (gorgeous ~ in blues/aquas/purples).
Sooo, I thought that just maybe I'd better practice first. Whoa!!!! Is there a LEARNING CURVE to use the rotary cutter on the Apple Core template???? I was all over the place with my cuts And, of course, even marred the new template.
Are there brands of templates better than others??? It is a heavy plastic, about 1/8" thick and very sturdy. Was less $$$$ than the brand-name ones in stores.
So, do I just need to PRACTICE??? Or is the better way, to trace around with a pencil and then cut with scissors???
HELP!!! I so wanted to get a chance to see how these sew together!!!
