So, I started a winter tarp project today. I used a few new toys and it got me to wondering what everyone else finds useful.
I really wish I would have bought a long straight edge sooner. I have a 72" now and it makes drawing out patterns so much easier. I also picked up a 24" x 36" cutting mat and a rotary cutter, much easier and neater than scissors. This last one is more of a trick than a toy. Others have mentioned PVC pipe and string for cat cuts. That gave me the idea of using the pole for my tarp mod and some string. Getting the curve right was tricky but doable. It allowed me to trace everything out by myself.
I have a couple more things I will report on once I have a chance to try them out. So, what tricks and toys do you use?
