I bought some great slinky broomstick kind of fabric on the $1 table at WalMart with the intentions of making a simple gathered elastic waisted broomstick skirt. Now I can't figure out how to stabilize (sp) it long enough to get it cut and sewn. Any suggestions? I'm afraid to try cutting because I don't want to screw it up completely.

Thanks-

Can you iron on some kind of bondaweb backing just to stabalize it then it can be pulled off once cut.

Using a rotary cutter and weights will help make it easier to cut.  As far as sewing, using adding machine paper between the feed dogs and the fabric will make it easier to sew.  After you sew your seam just tear the paper away.
