*I received a Silhouette Cameo for review, but I had actually purchased and paid full price for a machine back in July! Someone is getting a really nice Christmas present next month
This summer, I bought myself a new toy – the Silhouette Cameo, a crafty cutting machine for creating delicate design cut-outs from paper and fabric! It was quite a splurge for me, buying a machine just from watching some Youtube videos. But I wanted to start learning how to quilt, at the request of Nathan, who wanted me to make a Minecraft quilt for him.
The problem I have with applique quilting is cutting up itty bitty pieces of material. See all these hexagons, the bee and the “hello honey!” — all that was printed — errrr— cut out by the Cameo. It was super easy, took only minutes and I created a one-of-a-kind quilt.
Sewing up the quilt:

The Silhouette Cameo is about the size of a small printer, is crazy easy to use and is just fun to watch.
In addition to being able to draw and upload your own designs, there is an entire online store for downloadable images and crafts:
You can create 3D cards and gifts too.
I love it – it’s a fantastic present for a crafter in your family!
