TIP: Two ideas and one reminder for trimming felt.
- For a good, clean cut, place the felt with the fabric side down and cut through the backing material.
- To get a good size match when cutting padding for mounts made of brass strap, take a piece of strap the same size as used in the mount and cut against it as a template.
- And always remember to keep your cutting blade sharp! Felt does not forgive a dull blade.
