TIPSI highly recommend using fabric scissors for cutting fabric. You will get nice clean edges and the blades cut like butter (like BUTTER I tell you!!!). Trust me – I tried with regular scissors and got results that would have been better if I had gnawed the material apart with my teeth.

Another great option is a nice rotary cutter used with a straight edge for the first part of the cutting. You’ll get nice smooth cuts with ease, and the round blade glides along the ruler and cuts through several layers of fabric easily. It’s also really comfortable to work with and a little faster if you plan on cutting lots of fabric!
