Video: Best Cutting Tools for Sewing

This post contains affiliate links.

Let’s take a look at my pretty vast collection of cutting tools that I use for sewing. To be honest, sometimes it feels like we do as much cutting that we do sewing, not to mention ripping…

So having great tools are really crucial and over the years I’ve amassed a pretty extensive collection, including both splurges and budget finds. In this video I talk about all the tools I use, and the pros and cons of them, including some less than stellar buys.
