Is it worth buying a fabric calculator?
I bought a copy of "Quick Stuff to Sew" magazine. As I leafed through all the cool things to make, one design called for using a fabric calculator. I mostly make quilts and tote bags right now. Even if a pattern tells me how much fabric to buy, I always seem to cut it too close since I am new to sewing.
I think the fabric and pattern companies are in cahoots together. With the exception of grain direction lines and piece that must be placed on a fold, you can cut your pattern out in a way that conserves fabric. If you are good at cutting fabric, you can put the pieces pretty close together. I’ve always ended up with more fabric than I need. Thus the need to take up quilting.
