    You are misleading people by suggesting they wash their fabric before using. This is a matter of personal choice and millions of us don’t prewash! You need to fix this video so as not to portray your instruction as necessary.

    oh boy. i just bought 3 yds of fabric for a head wrap and it is at least 60 inches in width. I want it down to 20 inches in width but I do not have a rotary cutter. what if i just spread out and cut with a regular ruler, it might take a while but if the line isn't perfect i wont see it anyway since it will be tucked around my head.

    Thank you for a great tutorial, haven't sewn for a long time so I needed to re-fresh my memory. You did a great job explaining everything and I am dying to try out one of those new rotary cutters. Thanks for getting me all excited about sewing.

    Hello and thank you.  This was so well explained and so very useful.  You relieved a big chunk of the stress regarding cutting fabric for garments on a self-healing cutting mat.  Again thank you.  Oh and yes, what a lovely sewing room you have.

    Darling Adventures, If you could give your opinion on what's the best Rotary Cutting mat and why, or whether you think they're mostly the same and brand doesn't matter it would be really helpful.  Thanks

    Farhat, I was in my local Hancock Fabrics tonight and they have green rotary cutting mats (I think Olaf brand – something like that) – they probably also have them online, also Joann's has them.  WalMart has grey and orange (I think Fiskars brand).  Just happen to have been looking lately.  Haven't committed to buying one just yet.
