How to Use Silhouette’s Fabric Interfacing TUTORIAL

i don’t know about you, but when i heard that *Silhouette can now cut fabric*, i flipped out. big time. i had tried to cut fabric with my Silhouette using fabric stiffener, but it didn’t work. so i was beyond thrilled when Silhouette came out with Fabric Interfacing that makes it possible to cut fabric with my Silhouette SD. and after playing with some of the interfacing, i’m in love! it’s easy to use and works great!

Tutorial on how to use Silhouette’s Fabric Interfacing: 










*i double cut my design to ensure that it cut cleanly.*
double cut: after your Silhouette has cut the design once, DO NOT UNLOAD THE MEDIA {cutting mat}. simply click “cut” again and let the Silhouette cut the image again. if you unload the cutting mat and reload it, the cuts will not line up exactly.


i made this adorable bunting that i posted about yesterday using my Silhouette.

Silhouette has some awesome deals going on right now:

  • get a Silhouette SD with one of each fabric interfacing (clean cut and sewable) and a roll of white flocked heat transfer material for $229. {$300 value!}
  • get 25% off fabric interfacing– clean cut and sewable

use promo code: CRAFT {easy enough to remember, huh?} tocash in on these killer deals! offer valid March 21-27. so don’t wait! i know the interfacing sells out quickly because it is such a hot new item! {i know i’m in love with it!}  

*note: after you enter promo code “craft” into the appropriate box, you should see the discount taken off in your subtotal.

    Hi, Just fYI, there's a double cut option you can click under cut settings. Its to the right of the speed and thickness. That way you don't have to hit cut again. It just does it.

    Love love you blog!!!!

    I love it! It is so awesome! I guess I just love everything you do… but this is cool! :D I wish I had a silhouette! Maybe someday… :P Can you tell me, or anyone really, do you all have to upload your pictures from last to first? Is my computer just messed up? Does everyone load them backwards? Thanks! I'd like it if you commented on my blog with the answer, because i'm pretty busy… :D Thank ya!

    That is awesome. This might end the debate between which crafting machine is better (Silhouette vs Cricut Expression) *Sigh* Someday I will have one :)

    Hi there, I have been following(stalking) you blog for quite some time now. I must say, your Silhouette tutorials are one of the best out there. I have a Silhouette and have not had a chance to use it yet, but your tutorials make it super easy to try. Thanks for all the hard work you put into this to make my life easier!

    Thanks for the tutorial! I used Heat and Bond interfacing from my local fabric store for $2.99 a yard, It works exactly like Silhouette’s $7.99 interfacing (Plus $8 to ship). Try that – no difference!!!

      Good to know that worked for you! I would be afraid to ruin my machine. {not cheap to replace it!!} Plus as per Silhouette, their interfacing is made specifically for the Silhouette machine and so using other products may cancel any warranties on your machine.
