Default Cutting Binding Strips

I have been cutting strips to make binding using my ruler and rotary cutter. I know there has to be and easier, quicker, more precise way to cut these strips.....any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

The only other way I know of is using my Go 2 1/2 strip cutter. I will be watching to see what other great ways there are :-)

Happy Sewing

I couldn't cut strips without my June Taylor Shape Cut ruler. It has saved my sanity. I didn't understand how to use it at first, but once I figured out how to fold the fabric correctly....well, worked wonderful for me. Following the instructions really helped. I bought one of mine at Wal-Mart, but I am sure Hobby Lobby or Hancocks has one.

Google it and look at it. It sure makes cutting strips (or anything, really) easier. It may be just what you need.

I use the June tailor shape cutter or strip cutter. I forgot what the correct name is and I am not at home. Sorry

I also use my Go cutter! I'd go insane without it as I can't cut straight to save my life!!

I gave mine away years ago and after watching the video I'm sure sorry. Guess I will have to reinvest!
