I was grumbling about trying to cut a straight line while cutting some batting the other evening and my husband suggested using his laser level to mark the fabric. Let me tell you, once in awhile the old boy comes up with a good idea and this one was one of his best! This little gadget shot a nice straight beam of light, perfect for cutting batting. This particular laser level is a Black & Decker 10' Beams and Chalklines Line Generator and sells at Lowes for under $15, but there are lots of models available at your favorite hardware store. Any laser line would be a great investment for your sewing room!
