Intro Post

I recently used my ScanNCut2 to help me create this cute little fabric vase:
BeautyShot-wm

I fused some fabric onto Peltex and then cut out the pieces using my ScanNCut...

I wasn’t sure how the thick and heavy Peltex would do in the ScanNCut2, but it cut like butter! You can see the two small test cuts I did in the upper right corner of the photo above.

Remember to always test cut when trying out a new material!

After cutting my pieces, I added painted fabric, tissue paper, and some stenciling.

Then I took it over to my Brother sewing machine to stitch the vase together.

The super duper easy-to-follow pattern for the vase is from the book Fast, Fun, and Easy Fabric Vases by Linda Johansen. It was my first time making a fabric vase and I love the way it turned out.

Talk to you next week!

Any tips on cutting felt? I bought felt by the yard which seems to be slightly thinner than the squares. I tried to iron stabilizer on the back but the blade was still dragging the felt but not the stabilizer. Thank you for any suggestions or tips!

Why do you put the fabric on the mat instead of the fusible paper side when doing appliques? Is there a good tutorial for new scan -n-cut users?
