|This might be a 'du-uh!' idea, at least for me it was at the time - and I might be a late bloomer on this idea (why didn't I think of this before!). I have admired the rotating cutting mats, but for their size I didn't think the price was what I wanted to pay. Then one day a few months ago, I was cutting out a small garment piece, didn't feel like pinning my muslin to the fabric, and didn't have the space to go around the table to cut one of the sides nor felt like moving the table out to go around and cut – (it was one of those days people.) My DIY mind said, just turn the mat. Bingo! Voila! I had a rotating mat - and one that is 24 X 18 at that! It was smooooth and easy. Anyone think of this besides me!
