Hello my fellow Silhouette lovers, Brittany here! Today I finally got a chance to play with Silhouette’s Printable Cotton Fabric and, as is per usual with their products, I’m in love. Think about it—printing your own patterned FABRIC! Yeah, it’s really cool.

 

For this project, I will be taking you through the steps of choosing different printable patterns from the Silhouette Design Store, how to add a graphic element on top, and finish it off by adding it to an embroidery hoop to make a quick and simple hangable art piece.

 

If you’re a beginner to the Silhouette world, this is a quick and easy project that can be completed in under thirty minutes—and it’ll help you get more familiar with the Silhouette Design Store layout.

Supplies needed:

 

To start:

  • Begin by measuring the size of your embroidery hoop and creating a circle in Silhouette Studio® that is a larger than your hoop size. (About half an inch all the way around will do.) This will assure that your printed pattern doesn’t get cut off when you put it inside your embroidery hoop.

  • Next, click on the Silhouette Design Store icon on the left hand side of your window in Silhouette Studio®. This will open up the Design Store right inside the program and you can purchase your pattern right inside the software!

 

TIP: Finding a printable pattern is easy with the Design Store’s search system. Filter your searches by using the drop down menu and navigating your way to the “Printable Backgrounds” option under the Borders & Backgrounds category. Once this is selected, your search will be narrowed down to only printable patters, making it easier to find what you like.

  • Once you have purchased and downloaded your patterns and designs, head back to Silhouette Studio to start filling in your circles. If you aren’t sure which patterns to use, pick a couple and see what they look like printed. I went with patterns: Hello Friend Polka Dot (Design ID #34108) and Weeds (Design ID #32308)

  • I knew I wanted the design on top to give that same “washed” effect the patterns I chose were giving, so once I chose my design, I set it in white to give almost a “bleached” effect once printed since the white of the cotton fabric will show through.

  • Place a sheet of the Silhouette Printable Cotton Fabric into your printer with the backing still in place. It fits just like regular 8.5 in. x 11 in. printer paper and is lined with a plastic backing so your printer’s feed rollers can send it through like regular paper. Once printed, you can remove this plastic backing.

  • Cut the fabric in half, allowing enough room for your embroidery hoop to wrap the edges. Secure your fabric printing into your embroidery and trim the excess fabric.

Hi friends, both old and new! My name is Brittany (of BSaz Creates) and I am so excited to be joining the Silhouette Creative Team for another year! Outside of the Creative Team, I am freelance designer and creative living out my life-long affair with crafts in Chicago, IL. I have used my Silhouette CAMEO for projects small and large. From invitations to storefront windows, Silhouette has expanded my capabilities as a one-woman design studio in so many ways. When I'm not working on a project (or even when I am) you can almost always find me eating ice cream and cuddling with my pint sized pup, Brody, who makes quite the appearance on my instagram. I can't wait to continue to share my projects with you all!
