new favorite sewing toy


 I'm kind of a sucker for notions... and I recently brought home a new blade for my Olfa rotary cutter!
The pinking blade!!!  I have pinking shears but the pinking rotary cutter is waaaaay more fun!

I wanted to break in my new blade so I decided a fun little bunting was in order.  It took me all of an hour to cut out 17 (woah that's a lot !) 4" tall flags, pin them into the binding, and sew a quick zig-zag stitch down the whole thing.  


The pinking blade is thicker than the standard straight blade but man it cuts like buttah...  no joke!
Even through Amy Butler's "Love" home dec weight fabric.  I'll be making more of these sassy little  buntings to sell at the craft show in November!  So fun!

I tried one of those blades on my rotary cutter & it didn't work well. Maybe I'll have to try again??

I have one too! And I love it! I used it to make pennants too, for my wedding :) Makes cutting so much easier! What did people do when they only had scissors....were any lines straight?! :)
