Have you cut strips the modern way? It's not about using a ruler but rather cutting without one. Sound daunting? Well, it really isn't that hard. I created a short video to show you how easy it actually is.

Remember last week I mentioned a new pattern? Well, it is here now! Freshly released and a fun make with modern cutting techniques (or traditional if you prefer).
