Bee in my Bonnet #STCM-4100
- Solid Mat Review by Rebekah
This cutting mat is THICK at 3mm. Most standard cutting mats are half this measuring in at 1.5mm (even the double sided ones). It also has a nice grip to the cutting surface which means that my fabric will stay put when cutting and the mat itself won't slip around on my work table.
I love the color combo this came in. It won't strain my eyes to stare at this mat for long cutting sessions. All the markings on the mat are extremely useful. I especially appreciate that there are yardage markings at the very bottom! There are yardage markings for every "typical" fabric cut (1/8, 1/4, 1/3, 1/2, 5/8, 2/3, 3/4 and 7/8) This feature will come in handy when I'm trying to figure out how much fabric I might have on hand or I can't recall how much yardage I bought. Thoughtful feature!
This mat DOES ship flat <3
It did have a slightly stinky smell of rubber/pvc (from the materials used) but it doesn't smell toxic in any way and has only taken a few days to air out from it's packaging. I know some cutting mats use dangerous chemicals in their manufacturing that can cause some people to become ill and off gas for some time and others contain lead.
I appreciate the high quality of materials used and the obvious care that's been used in getting this produced properly.
Definitely worth the price, high quality. I can see this lasting me a very long time. Highly recommended!
