You guys, look what came in the mail!!!! My new sizzix custom die!
Here's what it looks like after cutting.
I can quickly separate the squares from the cut away trash. I had these quares cut and stacked in no time this afternoon. Since I'll be sewing these across from point to point and trimming one side to make half square triangles, I am able to use squares that are missing one corner.
I put five layers of white backgound fabric through the sizzix and cut one hundred squares at once!!! This new Sizzix die will save me days of cutting time.
To make sewing point to point easier, I put a piece of washi tape in line with the sewing machine needle. I can now line up the point of the square on that line and follow it as I sew across the square.
Zippity zip and I have lots of sewn half square triangles. This is only the beginning.
Now, I'm ready to sew miles and miles of tiny sawteeth strips!
