Tips and Troubleshooting
Remember, precision counts when rotary cutting. To avoid cutting multiple crooked strips, square up your fabric again before cutting too many more strips.
Maintain good posture, bending at the hip rather than the waist when rotary cutting is easier and puts less stress on your back and arms. Place your cutting mat on an appropriate height table or countertop. Raise your cutting table by finding bed risers at your local linens or chain store.
If you haven’t cut through all the fabric layers, check the following:
Is the blade dull?
Is there a nick in the blade?
Did you put enough pressure on the rotary cutter?
