Make a Mini in an Afternoon with the Strip-Smart Mini

I love this little tool!  The magic is in the square printed on the ruler.  That square allows you to use the same tool to cut half-square and quarter-square triangles.  And when you cut those shapes from strip sets and tubes, the possibilities are endless!

Sew together three 1 1/2″ strips; a 2 1/2″ and a 1 1/2″ strip; of a 3 1/2″ strip.  Then sew two strip sets together into a tube to create any of these projects in record time!  Kathy has created four new patterns for this Market.
