Fastest Fussy Cut Appliqué Ever!


#1

This is a piece of fabric with heat and bond already applied. Going to look fabulous on my skirt.


#2

Ooh, such possibilities for really detailed pieces. Doesn’t look like there’s much charring on the edges, either!


#3

There is some charring but that might be my fault! lol. I had slowly gone up to 50% and it wasn’t enough and I jumped to 80%. You cannot see any charring when it is on the skirt. :slight_smile:

Also, when taking the paper off the back one of the thinner areas broke off.


#4

If the garment is machine washable I expect the char will washout with any problem.


#5

Yes it will! (Make a cute skirt!) :grinning:


#6

Awesomesauce!


#7

So nice to see this! I have a friend who has given me some fabric and bond sheets to practice with and I haven’t taken the challenge yet. And the fabric she gave me is black, so I shouldn’t need to worry about any charring. :wink:


#8

Can you use masking on the fabric to reduce the char? I’ve been using this;

for my non-proofgrade material.

This is just what my wife, a quilter, bought the machine for. When we finally got to see the specs said you could not cut through layers of fabric safely she gave me control of the GlowForge. I got her a die cutting machine instead, but I will cut her special pieces when asked.

What fun! I’ve cut fabric on the Silhouette Cameo … and although I don’t do a lot of applique … I did buy a Seklema mat for paper and fabric cuts.

Post a photo of your skirt! :slight_smile:


#11

I have a Silhouette Cameo I didn’t find it to be particularly good at cutting fabric.


#12

I’m a beginning sewist. This is my first wrap skirt. It is very basic because I wanted to do lots of embellishing.


#13

Very cute skirt. You must be having a blast! And, sewist…an interesting new term for seamstress. It spell checks to sexist! :smile:


#14

Lol. Seamstress is much more than I would claim.


#15

And sewist is so much better than sewer!


#16

I just joined a sewing group on facebook where they were discussing sewer (yuck), sewist, and seamstress. Sewist wins for me as it is gender neutral and doesn’t connote professional. I thought I had made up the word in a moment of desperation!

80% power at what speed?
