Yes! It Cuts Fabrics

For new aspiring fashion designers cutting out patterns from an expensive piece of fabric can be a stressful experience. After all, a slip from a pair of scissors and the roll could be ruined. With an electronic craft cutter, you can feed the material into the machine and wait for the perfect result!

It’s also perfect for cutting up shapes for quilting.Whatever icon, shape, design, you want to add to your tapestry, just print it out and sew it into the artwork.

Heat Transfers

Creating an unforgettable t-shirt with heat transfer sheets requires a steady hand and a sharp blade.

If you don’t possess either of these qualities, you can expect rough edges around your t-shirt’s artwork.

But now, you can feed your designs into the electronic craft cutter and have it do the grunt work.

Leather Goods!

Anyone who’s been to a craft market recently knows that handmade leather goods are expensive. While this is tied to the cost of the leather, it’s also linked to the level of artistry required to cut it out.

But now you can cut leather with an electronic craft cutter. Now you can create sleek credit card holders, a sunglasses pouch, or maybe a keychain! So, cut out the middleman and print it yourself!
