While I was working at Hancock Fabrics a lady told me that Olfa made a rotary blade that would put the holes in fleece so I could crochet around... I went home and looked on Olfa's website...but couldn't find anything of the sort. So I emailed Olfa and they replied that they did not manufacture the blades, but they could be found with Project Linus! And they sent me the website! I ordered the large one because I wanted to use it on fleece... but it works great!!! I have used it on flannel.. but I started the first round with a cluster rather than a single crochet around... (because the stitch is a bit too far apart for thinner fabric and thinner yarn). I love it! Now I MUST order ther small one I believe... or maybe both the "original" and the small!!! :manyheart

I have the original one but really prefer my Edgery-Doo over it.

I have both and I prefer the rotary one, due to the fact that I can just use it on a mat instead of having to have something stronger for the EdgeryDoo....JMHO

I haven't used the Edgery Doo; what needs to be underneath? if a quilt cutting mat doesn't work?

Thx.

The Edgery-Doo is easier to make sure you holes are a precise distance from the edge of the cloth. The Doo has some templates for taking you around curved corner.

The rotary cutter is likely faster, but you would have to hold it against a sturdy ruler to make sure it's straight.

I think the holes in the slip stitch cutter are too big and it's hard to get it even. The edgery-doo is just more "on the mark" for me. It's very easy to do and I love the round corners!

Hubby made me a board of insulation with plastic over it to use as my "poking" matt.
