Fun With The Silhouette Cameo


I have had the Silhouette Cameo for several years and, I’m afraid, I have to confess I have not used it for anything up until now.  In November 2015 I took the opportunity of attending the Silhouette conference near Atlanta.  Other than freezing all weekend I really enjoyed the class and finally have gotten the time to play.

This was a cup from the Dollar Star, the name and slogan were cut out of adhesive vinyl and attached to the cup.  Still lots of room to learn and improve but it was really fun.  Of course I had to make a mug rug to go along with the coffee!  Mug rug was made in the hoop on the embroidery machine.  Fun project and simple.  I have dishwasher tested the process and find that it holds up to the dishwasher process superbly!

Next I intend to concentrate on some t-shirts with Heat Transfer Vinyl.  I even got a heat press for Christmas so that I could play some more. Running out space on my cutting table though!

Looking forward to trying to make and adhere rhinestone designs.  I have played with cutting fabric for applique on quilts as well.  I know these machines can accomplish this…just need more user knowledge.

Happy Quilting…Karen
