Various body parts haven't been cooperating the last several months, so I'm officially proclaiming myself a "southpaw"! I wouldn't go so far as to say I've mastered cutting fabrics left-handed, but I'm on my way. Good tools help immensely!
Do you need to switch it up, too?? First of all, you may not need to purchase a new Rotary Cutter! All I had to do was move the blade assemblage to the other side of my Olfa Rotary Cutter - voila!! Thank you Margie for this money-saving tip!(http://www.firststitches.com/)
Absolutely necessary: The Klutz Glove, Fons & Porter - no need to explain further :)
And, very helpful: The Shape Cut, June Taylor - this is a thick plastic grid that helps keep the edge of the Rotary Cutter in the channel for accurate cutting. I enjoyed this tool (again, thank you Margie) before switch-cutting & LOVE it now! Very nice training for a new leftie :)
And, an easy pattern: Instant gratification (well, almost)! Used my 5-Yard Everyday Quilt Pattern to begin with - no triangles, certainly no curves! lol Will be doing machine binding very soon - not quite ready for the challenge of leftie hand stitching just yet .... but, soon .... faith.
