I recently bought a new cutting guide and when I went to use it the first time I was immediately reminded of a "Sewing Essential" that I am particularly fond of.
This just happens to be a very old vintage pack, but a little goes a long way, so a pack will last a while!
Fabric Grips are simply tiny sandpaper stickers that adhere to the back of your cutting guides to prevent the guide from sliding around as you cut your fabric. Simply apply them to the corners of your cutting guide, and center if it's an especially long guide.
And you're all set! They work beautifully! No more crooked cuts of fabric because you guide slipped and your also less likely to slip with that ultra sharp rotary blade too. OUCH! Hurts to even think about it!
Fabric Grips....a must have "Sewing Essential"!
For other items I consider essential in my sewing space, check out the "Sewing Essentials tab at the top of the blog.
