Hi All – I’m re-organizing my sewing studio (again) and, in order to recapture some floor space, I’ll be dropping the leaf on my cutting table and only putting the leaf up when I need to cut something out. (I have a cutting tables purchased years ago from Joann’s – it has a narrow surface in the middle and 2 leaves that drop on each side.)
Consequently, my full size self-healing mat (40×72) won’t fit on the down-sized table. Ideally, I’d like to salvage my existing mat and clip the smaller piece back on whenever I put the drop leaf up to extend the table to full-size (40×73).
Has anyone had any luck (or disasters) cutting their mats? Any idea on what tools I need to do this?
Thanks for any insight you can share . . .
