One of my favorite features about the Silhouette is that it can cut fabric. It’s awesome and I have done so many fun projects with it! I’m always amazed by how well it cuts the fabric too. I use this feature all the time to make pillows and to make t-shirts. It’s fun to cut out a cute design and then sew it onto a pillow or shirt.
Here is a pillow that I made for fall a couple years back. It still looks great and I still love it!
Another way I have my Silhouette cut out fabric is so I can put it onto the wall and kinda make a fabric sticker with it. When I was decorating my little girl’s play kitchen in her closet, I wanted to make a fun little window for it. You can’t have a window without a curtain. And curtains are so much cuter with fabric, so I made her a fabric curtain wall sticker.
This is how I did it. I took a piece of fabric and then I piece of white vinyl. I cut them the same size.
Then using Mod Podge, I put a layer of the glue onto the vinyl and then put the fabric onto the vinyl. I pressed it down hard and then pushed out all the air bubbles.
Then I put the fabric onto the Silhouette mat and cut it out.
Here it is all cut out. I used the regular settings for fabric interfacing, but just made it a little deeper cut.
I then cut out a window and curtain rod with vinyl. I just peeled off the backing and stuck it up on the wall.
It was super easy to make and I love how it turned out!
And here it is in her play kitchen. So much fun, huh? I love it!
