What a great idea. Wish I had known about this product when I did my Kaffe Fassett octagon quilt. Would have made my work so much more accurate.

I'm part of the Rare Bear army, we create bears from a specific Simplicity pattern to be donated to kids with rare diseases (check out rarescience.org ). I traced the pattern onto the flexable cutting mat, added the cutting details with marker, and use these to cut out my fabrics for the one of a kind bears. Sturdy, reusable, and I don't have to fuss with flimsy pattern paper.

I used them on my daughter's sewing cabinet. She doesn't have the nice, custom-fit insert for her specific sewing machine so I taped one to the cabinet surface and cut an opening for the needle and bobbin access. She now has a completely level surface for sewing that is flush with the cabinet top. :-) :-)

I use them to audition quilting designs with a dry erase marker. Wipe clean with magic eraser

I use them to create homemade stencils for use in surface design. Very economical—leav es more money for fabric and paint!! Thanks
