Make a Protective “Coat” for Your Rotary Cutter

Protect Your Cutter and Hands with This Quick Project!

We get a bit nervous sometimes about toting our rotary cutters to quilting class and such. It seems like it wouldn’t be hard to nick the blade or to accidently cut ourselves, even when the cutters are in the “closed” position.





These darling little rotary cutter sleeves from First Light Designs are a great solution. They’ll protect your cutter blade (and your hands!), no matter how much digging around in your quilting bag you need to do in order to find your cutters.

Get started by choosing fabrics you love, then have fun finding great buttons. The decorative buttons and binding make them look a bit like coats!

Instructions for a Protective Coat for Your Rotary Cutter

If you’re nervous about the binding, you’ll be pleased with the binding instructions. There’s a  partial-no-sew option that goes quite quickly! You can also machine or hand stitch the binding as you normally would for a quilt.

A finished coat measures about 3¾” x 8″.
