My first circles, oddly enough, were of t-shirt material. This is not a fabric I normally work with because of the way that it stretches and moves. However, even without a practice run and even with a less than ideal fabric, I cut perfect circles from the beginning. I kept one hand over the pivot point that is the center of the circle and one hand on the handle that moves the cutter around the circle. My worst circle was off by just a smidgeon and the "error" was easily hidden in the quarter inch seam allowance.
I do suspect that part of my success was due to a good cutting mat underneath and the sharp blade I was cutting with. A dull blade or a less ideal cutting surface might lead to dragging, potentially stretching the fabric.
It is critical to remove the safety cover from the pivot point before use or the center of the circle could creep on you. (Just put it back when you are done using it to avoid poking yourself.) Also, take care in learning how to sheathe and unsheathe the blade. I inadvertantly removed the blade when I first tried to unsheathe it. (reading directions is a good thing).
The product is well made, the cutter sharp, the position locks sturdy, and the one-way-bezeled handle spins smooth.
By the way, the pin that anchors the center of the circle is sturdy, yet makes only the smallest hole in the material you are working with. Don't worry about it ruining your material.
However, for lighter crafts I will not use this item. I found a round cutter by Martha Stewart that I like MUCH better.
Although I am VERY careful, I managed to cut the tips of 2 fingers - the blades are sharp (that's good thing) but when trying to rotate the cutter its easy to nick yourself without realizing it.
I also was disappointed that the pin used to mark the middle - and that creates the rotation of the cutter - leaves a sizable hole in the center of the circle. I was cutting heavy card stock for fans for my daughter's wedding. The hole in the center is definitely not attractive.
If I ever need to cut gaskets or anything like that (heavier items or ones that will have the center cut out) I will use this item. Other wise, I will definitely use the more user friendly, neater Martha Stewart one.
I LOVE THIS TOOL!
