I have. I had a large piece of material that I needed to cut--one way to big for any ruler or my table. I'd read on here that tearing it was the best way to go...especially if you wanted it to be square. i was so scared of ruining my material and just kept putting of trying this technique. I just gritted my teeth and kept measuring, marking, measuring, marking, ad nauseaum. LOL
I finally did it!!! And it worked just like many of you said. I'm soooo happy. No more of that hard, time-consuming stuff for me. Just going to tear-away.
Don't you just love the people here? I've learned soooo much from all of you.
I'd be interested in hearing your experiences of what frightened you for the first time.
