Take it from me, you can't be too careful when it comes to using your rotary cutter!
|"Keep your hand elevated, Rene'!"|
Even though I practice good habits, always closing my rotary cutter immediately after each "pass" and keeping my fingers away from the edge of the ruler, somehow my rotary cutter managed to jump over the ruler and slice my finger. It was not a pretty sight. Of course, I had just changed the blade that morning so it was super sharp. The incident happened during a guild workshop, and my friends took really good care of me! That trusty blue painters tape can also be used to wrap bandages ;-))) Forget bandaids....keep painters tape and gauze in your Sew Together Bag!!!
|Four stitches and a finger guard and I am good to go.|
For now I am staying away from sharp instruments; not to mention it's difficult to hold a ruler steady with a finger guard on your index finger.
I find that I can play with Legos though!
Before slicing my finger in class, I did manage to make a block or two.
It was a great workshop!
Happy (and safe) stitching,
