Measure Twice, Cut Once

The saying, "measure twice, cut once", is as old as the hills. It's generally used in carpentry to help prevent the wasting of materials but it's really a good tip for all crafts. It's a good rule when working with fabric, leather or any material that needs to be cut to fit a particular purpose. Measure twice, cut once, and waste less.
