Can someone with a rotary cutter help?

Postby Bugglyboo » Wed May 02, 2012 9:04 am

My FIL is very ill in hospital and we've been told that he won't recover. I want to make my MIL a quilt out of some of my FIL shirts (he has loads as he only wore shirts.).
I don't have a rotary cutter but I slaying have double vision and can't cut in a straight line.
So, is there anyone that could cut me some squares from cotton shirts. I would be willing to pay.

So sorry to hear of your FIL :( :hug: what a lovely idea for his old shirts! I'm afraid I am terrible at using my rotary cutter, I've reverted to scissors :oops: Are they woven cotton? They might rip in a straight line, or could you use a straight edge to lean the cutter against while cutting?

I'm going to wait until Julie starts clearing out Jeff's clothes and then see if I can get some so it will probably be a few weeks at least.
