Creating Vinyl Designs with the Artistic Sewing Suite or Artistic Simple Cut


Did you know that your Artistic Sewing Suite or Artistic Simple Cut (formerly Artistic Crystal) software can do so much more than create Crystal Templates. You can also create vinyl designs and cut them with your Cameo, Zing, or Edge Cutter.

And, don’t worry if you are not sure how to cut the vinyl, there are directions on the Artistic Creative Products website.  Click on this link, the select software, projects. Scroll down the list until you find the Vinyl Bag Makeover. It is on page 2. The directions of the project are listed on the right side of the page or just click here for a link to the instructions. Don’t limit your ideas. Have you seen the vinyl wall signs in the stores? Now you can make your own.

If you don’t have the software or a cutter, then stop by Sew Vac Outlet (Humble Sewing Center) and ask about how you can get started. Besides, crystal and vinyl, you can also use your cutter to pre-cut your appliqué material.

Vinyl Applique – Leather Bag Makeover

The Artistic software is not just limited to creating embroidery and crystal designs – it also has lots of great applications for various crafting techniques. For example, you can cut your design out of vinyl to embellish things that you wouldn’t normally be able to do embroidery or applique on. See how Artistic Educator Maddie Bushman takes this sweet leather bag and gives it a makeover with vinyl adhesives.

    this was the only place I could find to send a message or ask question. I will be staying in Kingwood Tx area the month of Feb. I’m looking for someone or someplace where I might become more familiar with using my babylock evolution serger. a group class or private class. Of course I don’t want to bring it to tx if none are available and so far…I haven’t found anything. If you have teachers available, and class available, please let me know as soon as possible.

    I really like the idea of creative vinyl designs and simple artistic cuts. What is the point of designing and creating things if you can not have fun with it. Learning how to develop this skill takes a lot of time, but it is so fun.
