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.
