After using the Brother Scan n Cut for several appliqué projects, I thought I’d share a bit of what I’ve learned through trial and error and playing around. Of course, many of these tips also apply to other cutters such as the Silhouette Cameo and KNK Zing. If you don’t yet have a cutter, this post may help you decide if you “need” one.
It may initially sound as if there is a lot of prep work involved in using the cutter but truly, I do almost the same prep whether cutting by hand or machine. A digital cutter just makes cutting WAAAAYYYY faster and of course, completely accurate. (I also have the Zing cutter, which I’ll write about sometime in the future as I get more experience with it.)
