    Re: help with squaring up fabric

    I line the fabric up with the edge of my worktable and then I use a t square to make a rightangle - mind you some fabrics tend to have quite a bit of movement in them so its not always foolproof. Alternativly you can fold the material back on itself so that the selvedges are straight with each other and then cut across the fold. Another useful tip is that a sheet of newspaper always has a 90degree angle

      I fold over and use a t-square.

        Linings I prefer lapped, measure, snip, fold over hand, make sure the two selvedges are square to each other and cut along the fold.
        Fabric, I like to square off on the end of the table, clamp if needed but be careful as the clamps can sometimes pull, and cut along the edge of the table. You can use a T square if you want. Anything that you know has a true 90' angle, and a bit of confidence. Sometimes ones eye is the best judge

          If its a suitable fabric i pull a thread. Suitable as in loose enough weave to be able to pull the thread.
