This is amazing! I don't know what I was thinking trying to do quilting and general sewing projects without this tool set! It makes cutting angles a breeze, straight lines are actually straight (and square!), and everything is so fast, plus I'm not blowing through marking pencils. Using the ruler with ease took a bit of practice, but I had plenty of projects to try it out on, and the first couple times I used the rotary blade I skewed away from the ruler, leaving a curve instead of a straight cut. With practice I mastered it, and found holding the tool blade-side against the ruler worked better than handle-side towards the ruler. If you plan on doing a lot of sewing and quilting you must get this set. It will save so much time and headaches.

Just received. The mat is double-sided (gray on one side, white on the other), with measurement lines on both sides. Rotary cutter worked great on thin suede pieces. No marks on the cutting mat. I hope I can change the blade with a titanium one later. I think that pressing down too hard with the cutter may accelerate damage to the mat, so I'll only use a sharp blade. The ruler is great. Measuring and cutting the fabric was the most tedious part of my sewing projects, but this cutting set removes the tedium! Thanks to Fiskars. A sturdy, well-thought out cutting set.

Update September 2, 2017: Just used the set to cut very thick leather with layers of suede backing (from an old leather purse I'm recycling). I had to run the blade over the material several times, but

This is a good rotary set for anyone starting out sewing, or if its not going to be used often. You cant beat the price. I used mine almost on a daily basis and multiples times each day. Fabric shifts under the ruler or on the mat, and the side of the mat i use the most has cut marks in it. Now that i am more familiar with cutting, though, i am getting a better(hopefully) and bigger nonslip mat (us art supply), nonslip ruler(omnigrip) and more ergonomic rotary cutter (olfa)

Pleasantly surprised by these scissors. At this price, I wasn't expecting them to be as sharp and sturdy as they are. This may sound weird but because they are so sharp and tight, snipping yarn has the most satisfying feel with these lol

I bought these for my wife since I thought she’d love the design. Turns out that ever time she uses the sheers she talks in a Victorian era British accent. I thought this was a joke until I used the sheers and developed the same accent! My wife even landed a Broadway gig simply by using the sheers as a prop; the producer just loved her accent! 4 stars because I prefer a Scottish accent

I was so excited when I first got these! I'd been looking for quality sewing scissors, that also act as nippers, for a long while now. Then I came across these and regardless of who was selling them they had 5 stars! How could I go wrong? Right? Wrong!!! They cut and nipped beautifully, but when I went to trim up a thin piece of felt, in no way 'hard' material, the handle fell apart! They didn't break in the place scissors usually break either. The 'finger hole', for lack of a better definition, just broke off! I was by NO means abusing or otherwise trying to cut steel here! I use them primarily to cut thread and nylon stretchy string. And I got them less than a month ago! Sad too, because they cut beautifully! So pretty too. What a shame. (I gave em 2 stars for blade sharpness)

Loved this for cutting small but thick pieces of leather. I bought these small ones to make sure I like this style of cutting mat before I commit to buying a bigger one. I've done several cutting projects now and have only used one side of one of the cutting mats. It still looks barely used. At my pace and work style, these might last me some years of small project usage. It doesn't heal as well with punches and awls. The punctures do not heal as well as slices.

Awesome Cutting Mats. Quality is amazing. Price is even more amazing. Highly recommend these Mats to everyone both Family and Friends and all Quilters. Would have given them 10 Stars if I could have. I keep one in every room that I might have to do some cutting. Arrived in 1 day.
Thank you very much for this product

Great quality very thick and durable! Heavy duty like it could seriously be used as a weapon lmao hut it's still flexible enough that u can bend it slightly if need be! Love that this is double sided so it is Dual Purpose and also for the price you cannot beat this there's not a lot of things you can get of this quality for this price nowadays I highly recommend this product!

This is perfect for the adult coloring books and supplies I got for Christmas. The books fit in the larger space and the other three compartments hold my colored pencils and markers. It's great for keeping it all together in a way that makes it easy to carry around with me.

The bottom isn't solid. There is a 1/2 inch gap on the longer (non-partitioned) side. So you can't put any small papers/sticker sheets or anything small in it as it would fall out. I still use it but that was rather disappointing. Why would they make a tote with a gap at the bottom?

This is very soft so it is comfortable to wear for extended periods of time. I have already re-ordered twice and will order more when I run out. If you’re making masks, I promise it’s perfect and just in case you’re using pony beads for custom fit straps, the regular size ones fit just fine and are easy to feed.

Real nice quality elastic. Very happy with purchase. Arrived quickly

By Vanessa Michelle
The Elastic arrived as a large lasso making it easy to cut/use. The material is similar to the soft round fabric type elastic used in hospital issue masks but it’s flat, and although the description says 1/4”, it’s more like 3/8. Washability is still to be determined.
I attached a pic of the actual one received, the black is a true 1/4” elastic and I included the 1/8” round for your comparison.
Rating was dropped a star because of the width discrepancy.

I don't know how to describe the weight or maybe you call it the thickness of the paper. I was hoping this would be about the same thickness as cheap copy paper. It is slightly thinner than that though. I am using it for wrapping paper so it will still suit my purposes. If you are using it for art paper, it is probably too thin for water-based paints but still ok for ink stamping projects.

I bought this as simple wrapping paper for Christmas gifts. I really enjoy decorating my own wrapping paper, and it's cheaper to do so anyways. Some pros:
-The paper is great--thick and sturdy, but bendable enough so that it doesn't rip when you try to fold up the corners.
-Miles long. I'm going to be using this for a while

Con:
-A narrow role--not wide enough to wrap the 23" monitor screen I bought for my boyfriend. If you're only using it to wrap smaller gifts, then it's fine.

This paper worked well. But since I'm packing for a move, I ran out of it. I headed to Smart n Final looking to see if they sold something something similar. They sell a 1000 (one thousand!) feet roll of white butcher paper for $20 that is perfect for wrapping things in. I'm still packing and that $20, 1,000 foot roll is still going strong!

I do not know about you but I find myself needing a safety pin at the worst possible time crunch times. This has enough safety pins to make a to go cloth to in a slim packet in a purse, suitcase, at the office or another workplace -- in a variety of sizes to cover any need I can think of off hand. Solid buy, pleased with value and usefulness. Might get another for my daughter as she has two young children, boys yet. That is if she does not buy it for herself first.

I love the variety that I received with this kit. Shirts these days are too low cut for my taste so I find that I have to pin many of them closed a bit higher up than the top button or pin small cloth inserts into the gap. These pins are perfect and having different colors helps to hide the pin within the fabric, especially if there isn't a hem around the neckline. I highly recommend them!

These scissors are much heavier and overall, much more nicely made than I was expecting for the price. The lack of cost, however, really shows in the blades. While they are sharp, one pair has a warped blade and the points do not align; the other pair has better alignment and much less warping but the points are of different thickness. The screws loosened almost immediately as well, and unlike well-made scissors, they cannot be tightened or adjusted.

If you’re looking for attractive and serviceable snips to cut and trim threads while working (and make them into a modern chatelaine, as I did, bc lazy) and save wear and tear on your good scissors, these will do ... or just give in and get the Ginghers/Singers/DMCs especially if you’ve gotten yourself into some massive embroidery project. Life’s too short for crappy scissors.

These are very attractive though.

Great product!I have a Cricut and got these to use with it. This mat doesn't have an awful odor. They work well for all my htv and standard vinyl needs. Keep the clear sheet on it when not in use and it will last you a long time. Definitely recommend this cutting mat.

These are my new favorite mats for using my cricut!! They work wonderfully and I love that I can buy a three pack because I use them almost daily! I will definitely be buying more in the near future! If you are questioning whether this brand is the same quality as cricut, don’t. This mat feels just as thick and sticky as the cricut mat if not stickier!! It is very sturdy, well-made, and it will be the only 12x24” mat I will be getting from now on

These are actually really nice scissors. Not only are they sharp but they are quite beautiful. I guess you could say these scissors really cut it! ....Wow I am turning into my 14 year old son. Let me start this review over. I get compliments on these scissors all the time and even find that I have some little thieves in the house who insist my scissors are "lit" whatever that means. Slang these days. Anyhow I personally think they are nice to look at, are comfortable to hold and they get the job done. I mean what more could I ask for? Even came with 3 scissors in the pack in all different sizes for all different occasions. Not too shabby in my book.

The only regret I have is that I did not buy them sooner. It is a delight to use these scissors. They are very sharp, well built and perform the way one would wish and expect of a good tool. Three perfect sizes. The pivot is excellent (slotted flat head stainless screw in a recessed guard with a guarded cap nut on the back) and does not allow any "play" between the blades, insuring a true cut from the pivot to the very tips. The handles are comfortable. There is no indication that these are going to fail in any way any time soon. For the price these cannot be beat. I use them every day several times a day and cannot find fault and I am a good fault finder.

These scissors might be a dream to work with but as I type this, I look down and I have blood all over my keyboard. I'm so angry... and I'm not that type of person at all. The packaging is my huge problem. In the back of the packaging is something separate that I thought could possibly be a sharpener for the scissors. I reached down to pull it out and I had blood everywhere. It is a hidden razor blade - used for opening mail, but the way it is packaged you cannot see that and even though this was over 45 minutes ago, my finger has bled all over the place... the counters, the floors, the mail, the walls and now the keyboard. Yes. I've cleaned it, bandaged it and it is still soaking through everything. I am not one of

I have never worked with leather before, but I wanted a high quality envelope to hold watercolor paper for when I paint outdoors. It was important to me for the leather to be full-grain because I wanted it to hold up to the elements, and last a long time.

Quick note: Full-grain leather is the full hide. If you sand the outermost part off, you have thinner, Top-Grain leather. If you sand that off, you have Genuine Leather. (You need to emboss it with an artificial texture to make it look like leather.) I mention that because this is definitely Full-Grain leather. And it’s gorgeous.

This leather arrived two days after I purchased it, and it’s lovely! I ran out and picked up a sewing awl. I used a drafting compass to mark and punch holes for sewing. I cut the leather with an Exacto knife, and made this pouch in an

Used these for 2 inch square cross stitch motifs as Christmas ornaments for teacher gifts when the 4 inch hoops available locally were just a touch too big. They were the perfect size and much sturdier, had heavier wood, and a smoother finish than all the flimsy wood hoops available at big box craft stores near me too. The quality was amazing for the price. Hoops available in store splinter, break and bend easily, but these held up to all my frantic last minute gluing and retying of ribbons without any signs of wear. Will definitely order these again for finishing embroidery projects in the hoop. The only possible negative--since I didn't test it--is the finish is smooth so you might want to scuff it a little if you plan on painting them.

I ordered 12 of these for crafting. All 12 had the blue protective plastic coating on the metal pieces. It took me an hour with needle tweezers to remove the coating from the metal. One side came on fairly easily. The other side will never have ALL OF THE COATING REMOVED. Thankfully I will be able to cover it with ribbon-I hope! I gave this a 3 for easy to use because of the time it takes to remove the coating. when I get something I don't want to have to clean it up first.

I'm not sure what everyone has to complain about these scissors. They are perfect. Very durable, very sharp, perfect for snipping thread while I cross stitch. They are small, but that is to be expected for most embroidery scissors. I think they are great! All of them had the same quality, nothing bent.

One small complaint I do have is that they had a slight amount of oil on them when opened from the packaging (clear odorless oil). Maybe a little too much oil was used for the screw. I just washed them with dawn soap and they are fine.

So, I Literally just received my rotary cutter blades and I am happy to say they are great! - I tested one of the blades on my fabric and it cut through like butter. The product came in a cute little package and the blades were oiled - Thank you!  So with that said, I'm sure I will purchase again from this company. Thank you again!  and for those searching, I just saw one of these blades at my local retail store selling for almost $5 for just  ONE! Here you will get 10 blades for just under $12 dollars.  -DEAL!

P.S they fit my Fiskars just great!

Wow, I thought the blades that came with my name-brand rotary cutter were very good but these outshine them completely! With almost no pressure I can cut through all the layers with no "missed" spots that I thought normal in the past. Great blades at a super price! Can you tell I am totally pleased?

I have an older model Fiscars rotary cutter, and these blades fit perfectly! They are nice and sharp, and don't jiggle around. So far I have used them to cut through 4 layers of fabric, and it was great. I'm sure they would cut through a few more layers as well. So glad I bought these!

Shipped flat and rigid. Arrived pretty quickly using free shipping. The surface is a little of a glossy finish but that’s fine. I’d prefer matte since I take pictures of completed models and this surface shows a little glare. Product itself is excellent.

Note that I spilled almost an entire bottle of Tamiya panel liner ink on the black side of the mat and quickly wiped it up with no issues. No ink stains absorbed and the white grid lines weren’t affected at all. I was pleasantly surprised and very happy with this purchase.

This has improved my life so much. My old cutting mat didn’t have the numbers written on the top and bottom, meaning finding out where you were on the other side while measuring lines was always a guessing game. Heinous. This one completely solves that problem, to the tune of I didn’t even know how much harder that made things until I tried it the other way.

This one is also so much thicker, and I find myself really loving the black and white side. The contrast is much easier to read, much easier on my eyes.

I found this brand mentioned on Reddit and it was a great suggestion. It truly has made my life easier, if even in a small way.

***Amended review 7/12/2016: the original review was 3 stars and I'm happy to change it to 5 stars. These folks must read their feedback! I received a replacement set of scissors, without asking, based on what I had written in the original review, which was: "The large fabric shears don't cut fabric well, they would only cut about an inch at a time in the "sweet spot" on the scissors. However the medium and small scissors worked great." Thank you so much! The new large shears now work as well as the smaller ones.

Well, I did not made review at the same day I had received them. May be I'm kind of suspicious :-) After two weeks of intense use, I can honestly say: this scissors are best ones I had ever used! ( of course I mean utility scissors, not the ones for nails, etc.) They are lightweight, comfortable to hold and cut like a laser beam. What else should we expect from scissors. I had no reason to contact customer service, but they contact me by e-mail with some recommendations and tips to use their product. And I'm thankful for this. To conclude, I highly recommend this scissors to anyone!

I love the fact that I got three pairs of scissors. I have two sons who love to cut. They take my scissors and dull them all down. Then one day they wanted to make puppets. They had some material that they were trying to cut with their dull scissors and it obviously wasn't working. I have hair scissors and leather cutting scissors and they were trying to get to those, an obvious no no. So, I told them to hold off on their project for two days( gotta love prime.) When the pack came, i took the largest pair, and gave the older son the middle size and the youngest got the smaller ones( so 3 little bears). The kids were happy with the scissors they cut great. I took my pair and went outside and gave my shrubs a hair cut. I have a bad back, shoulders, neck

I bought these a little bit on a whim, and to be honest, fully expecting to slap myself on the back of the hand once delivered - for buying scissors I didn't really need but kinda wanted as a treat. I expected them to seem cheap and not be as good as I hoped. I could not be more wrong - they are both beautiful AND super sharp and very comfortable to use. Unfortunately, now I feel enabled to buy a few more pairs that I looked at... a stitcher can NEVER have too many pairs of beautiful scissors.

These are so awesome! Very pretty, very smooth on the finger rings, SUPER sharp and they are well weighted. I’m getting ready to order a few more for my sewing room. I am a scissor collector (I think most crafty people are haha) and these are a welcome addition. To the person who had a problem, please get them to send you a new pair. It sounds like they were damaged during shipping. Seriously, these are very good snips!

These are terrible. There is a slight gap in the blades in the middle. I have to position them either on the very tip or towards the back of the blades to cut a single piece of thread or silk fabric hem. These have one job, and they fail at it. Unreal. One of the worst products I’ve ever bought for my textile products.

It isn't truly self healing like a cutting mat should be but it does ok. It is annoying to have to scrape threads out of the cut, something you don't have to do with better quality mats, but for the price I am willing to put up with it. Also, I seemed to have dulled my blade just a bit faster than a more expensive mat but I am not entirely certain on that. Like I said before, for the price I can deal with that.

This cutting mat is a really good bargain. It isn't as good as my old Fiskars one, but it's also not as expensive. This will probably last two or three years, which is a good value. I really like the size, as a smaller mat (like 12x12) is difficult to use with 12x12 paper. It did come rolled, though, and getting it to lie flat required a little patience. It's thin enough to bend, which means it requires careful storage to make sure it stays flat.
