Cutting Gauge

This cutting gauge was in with the old Kenmore sewing machine accessories. It actually works quite well for something that just slips on to the lower blade of a pair of shears. The cutting width is only 1/2″ to 1 1/4″ but it will be great to have by the sewing machine for little things. Cutting long strips is faster with a rotary cutter. I can see using it when I don’t want to make a trip to the cutting table, or need to cut off a bit from something already gathered and hard to lay flat. I wasted more than a few minutes playing around with a scrap of batik. Still I am impressed with how easy it was to get an accurate cut.
