I've had my Silhouette SD for over two years --
and I've never used it to cut Fabric.
Until last night...
and now it's all I want to do! ;)
Do you want to cut some fabric too?
Well let's start cutting ... shall we?!
What you need:
Silhouette SD (or the Cameo if you're super lucky)
Heat N Bond (or Wonder Under)
Iron the Heat N Bond (or wonder under) to the backside of your fabric.
Wait for it to cool off and then pull off the backing ...
Place the fabric on the top of your mat (right side UP) and load it in your machine!
I ordered THIS blade for Fabric.
To cut cotton/lightweight fabric, twist it to "5".
Design your image in the Silhouette software!
A Speed of 5 and Thickness of 33 worked perfect for me!
Hit cut and let the machine do all the work ... :)
Gently pull the corners to reveal the perfectly cut fabric!
Seriously look at that ... AMAZINGNESS! :)
Now place it on your shirt (or whatever) and iron it down! ;)
If you used Heat N Bond Ultra then you don't need to sew it ...
if you used regular, give it a quick stitch for extra durability! ;)
I'm kind of obsessed ...
It was just SO easy!
Oh - and has your cutting mat seen better days?
Well - tomorrow I'll show you how to make it sticky again! ;)
