Cutting Fabric with Thin Dies
This post was inspired by a question left on my Spanish video of a few days ago. You can find the video here. In the video I talk about Die-Versions' Spanish Dies and demonstrate how to use the one I have, the "Feliz Cumpleaños" Sweet Spot. I don't know of any other company that is doing Spanish dies and felt the need to let me Spanish friends know about it.
I was asked if the dies cut fabric and the answer is yes, it's tricky, but worth trying. And that's what I did...
I ironed some Heat&Bond Lite to the back on my 100% cotton fabric.
I die cut one of my bigger dies. Die-Versions' "Happy Birthday" Solo Sentiment.
And it cut clean and beautifully, but I had to use a shim at the top of my die cutting sandwich. I used a piece of medium weight textured card stock.
Next I tried cutting the "Feliz Cumpleaños" Sweet Spot also by Die-Version. Unfortunately, I was not able to get a good cut with this die, but I'm going to keep trying with different sandwiches. If I get it to work I'll let you know.
I hope this little photo demo helps. Until next time, keep crafting.
