Cutting fabric with the Silhouette Cameo

For week 6 of  ’52 Things’ I decided to try cutting fabric letters using my Silhouette Cameo. Having worked out the lettering size in the Silhouette Cameo I cut out pieces of fabric and ironed on some interfacing.

P1190246I made each letter in a separate page and used the suggested blade settings.

    Jill, I believe there’s a fabric blade. Did you use one or your normal blade?
