I LOVE this era. You know why? Because of all the amazing tools we now have to make crafting and sewing MORE FUN. For example, take the revolutionary cutting machines that can now be purchased by literally anyone to do the cutting of fabrics for them. Earlier, this option was only available to the big companies but now anyone like you and I can get things cut by just a touch of a button.
One of the wonderful cutting machines available to us now is Cricut Maker, designed ESPECIALLY for sewers with its amazing rotary blade that can cut literally any type of fabric.
What is Cricut Maker?
Cricut Maker is a revolutionary automated cutting machine that can do all the cutting for you so you wouldn’t have to cut anything manually.
This machine can cut anything from the thinnest fabric (think silk and crepe) to the thickest one like leather and even WOOD!
Here’s a list of things you can cut using Cricut Maker
- all kinds of fabric (cotton, suede, faux leather, leather, velvet, georgette, etc.)
- fusible fleece
- heavyweight cardstock
- medium weight cardstock
- balsa wood
- leather up to 5 o.z.
The possibilities are endless.
All you gotta do is, select the project file from the humongous Cricut library, follow the directions given, get your mat ready and get everything cut by pressing a single button. Super simple right? I know!
And if you do not want to purchase the sewing patterns, you can use the free SVGs that you can find here on Sew Some Stuff to create your projects.
Why Should You Invest in the Cricut Maker?
If you’re slow at cutting and hate what it does to your back and wrists, then you NEED the Cricut Maker.
This is how things have changed since I’ve started using this amazing cutting machine;
- My back doesn’t hurt due to all the cutting which means I don’t need to rest and I can finish my project within a couple of hours.
- It takes me LITERALLY 15-20 minutes to get everything cut out.
- I don’t have to use my brains to measure and cut out all the fabric pieces
- I don’t have to put pressure on my wrists cutting out gazillion pieces
Cricut Maker can really help you by increasing your efficiency and reducing the time you spend on cutting.
