Simplicity 7330 Shirt

I found some material with an interesting pattern just right for a short sleeve shirt.  One problem with buying material at a thrift store is you don't always get the yardage presented.  The tag on the material read 2 1/2 yards.  I decided I could make another McCalls 3 hour shirt in a short sleeve.  However, when I opened up the material at home, it was exactly 2 yards.  What to do now?   I looked through my stash and found a Simplicity 7330 pattern which is also represented as a 3 hour shirt.  It needed 2 yards.  I thought great, and started cutting.

Speaking of cutting,  My friend Larry gave me a rechargeable cutter called Zip Snip.  It worked great for cutting the material.  I can't believe how much easier than scissors this cut the material.

Fits my hand perfectly.
Thanks for stopping.


  1. Best of luck with the shirt!!!! Must see where I can buy Zip Snip... Looks handy

  2. I took an intro to quilting class & we used a rotary cutter that was similar to your Zip Snip. Definitely easier than using scissors.

    1. My hands aren't as good as they should be. This tool sure makes life easier.
