Sharp Blades and Blood
I woke up bright and early today to go to work. My mom told me it would be a big day for me. She was going to let me cut fabric. First, she told me I had to be very, very, very careful because sharp blades can cut fingers and then there would be blood on the fabric. That would not be good.
We practiced where to place my hands. And then I started to cut.
I did a really good job. I stayed on the edge just like we practiced.
Once my cut was done, I picked up the fabric and started to fold it.
I have to match the corners...
...and then match them again.
one more fold and then it's ready for the customer. I think I did a good job. My mom told me I am never allowed to use the rotary cutter unless she is with me. I think that is a good idea because that blade is sharp...
