What is the best way to cut Sunbrella fabric?

You can cut Sunbrella fabric with typical sewing scissors, a rotary cutter, or pinking shears. The cut edge will be apt to unravel a small amount, but this is not an issue if you plan to hem your edges. You can also cut Sunbrella fabrics with a hot knife. Using a hot knife effectively seals the cut edge of the fabric to prevent unraveling and provides a nice trim edge. Be aware: cutting Sunbrella with a hot knife can sometimes result in sharp edges so be mindful when working not to hurt your fingers.
