I wonder if anyone can give me some advice really. I'm Making a pair of black cords with pick star shapes up the leg. For this i want cut the star shapes out of the black and sew the pink material in behind so it shows through the gap in the black.

Is there some sort of craft knife i can use for cutting shapes out of material/where can i get one or will scissors work just as well..? I need it to be very neat and straight

Also i plan to use a zigzag stitch around the outline of the star to neaten the edges and keep the pink in place. Is there a better way of doing it do you think?

Any advice would be appreciated.
