Voila, the next batch of dyed wool...

I'm finally sewing garments again and I happily discovered that cutting out patterns is much easier using rotary cutters.

Using the 28mm rotary cutter as a pivot point, I used my left hand to turn the piece as I cut. So easy!

I fused these pattern pieces to Pellon Quilter's Grid on Point which gives the tissue pattern some stability. The Grid comes with fusible on one side and a grid on the other, and it's transparent enough to be able to cut patterns on the wrong side too. It's also very easy to pin through. This method is so much easier than transferring to a non-woven pattern fabric.
