    Several months ago Beverly posted a question if anyone knew how to crochet on fleece. Then along came an answer that there was a cutting disk for a rotary cutter from Linus Project. I had some fleece at that time so I wanted to try it out. Here are the photos. It sure made for an easy edge with holes for crochet. Thanx Bev, even though I can't find the original thread.

    This fabric is for my giraffe loving daughter and my sometime future grandchild.

    This is the crochet edging. It goes really straight.

    Here is the gizmo that goes onto the rotary cutter.

    Then I made a "rag" blanket to match.

    I tried doing this without the tool. Gave up and just bought some fleece binding which is too expensive. The binding cost more than the fleece.

    I have never heard of this tool.

    Thank you.

Never learned to coochet even though my Mom knowes how and my 2 DDS. Mom can't teach me now because of her eyes and the DD That lives up here in GA. with me is left handed. She says there is a way sitting behind me or something like that don't remember!! :shock: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I have been making these for years but with flannel and cotton crochet thread. I cut a square yard of fabric, use a saucer and round the corners, then crochet around this for baby blankets. The mothers just love them.

    Ohhhhh! Those quilts will be hugged and loved one day. Where did you get the blade for the rotary cutter? I have looked all over for one.

    Thanks for the link to the blades. I crochet and have several smaller baby sized blankets I did not want to fringe, but crochet an edging. Now I can without killing my hands and fingers.

    The blankies look great.
