One of the things I desperately need to do is line my bedroom curtains with blackout material. Thing is, I hate sewing, especially the part where I have to cut the fabric. I can't cut straight; it has something to do with the fact that I'm sort of ambidextrous.
My mother has a self-healing cutting board and rotary cutter which make the prep part of sewing work a snap, so I thought that perhaps I could get these items for my curtain project. I was at Walmart today and found the same kit she has. It's currently packaged as a 'quilting set', but I think that's just because of current trends. The package has the rotary cutter, the self-healing mat, and an acrylic ruler. The package usually costs about 40$. The one I found was marked down to 20$ because the ruler is broken. What a bargain!
The mat and cutter can be used for other projects, like cutting paper, so they are multi-use tools and they won't take up a ton of room.
Okay, let the curtain work begin. :-S
