Any Projects Using Regular Fabric


#1

Hello all, while I’m still waiting to get my machine…(end of October can’t come soon enough), have any of you that are crafter that have the machine used it on fabric? I wonder does how good the edges cut…does it leave fraying on the edges…thanks

Here is a little test I did on silk which shows a closeup of the cut edges:

I’ve used it on fabrics too - some thin cottons. It leaves a nice edge. (You do get a little residue on the fabric if you don’t mask it.)

what do you mean by masking it

It should be noted that those results were obtained using the older settings, and would probably give even better results now.

I use a paper masking tape with adhesive on one side to stick to the fabric and prevent smoke buildup on it.
