It seems I canít cut a straight line to save my life! Because of this, I keep starting projects, not getting very far, and not liking them because my measurements are always off.
I know I have the seams right, and I am pretty confident I am sewing in a straight line, but darn it if I can never get things to line up . . .
I have a cutting mat and a pretty long 6 inch ruler. Now, I know it slides a bit, but could that be the only problem with EVERYTHING I cut being off? Any suggestions? Or is this normal for a beginner?
It is frustrating because I love the sewing part, but struggle with the measurement and cutting . . .which of course is a big part of the whole picture. . .
