I love my Silhouette Cameo cutting machine. I use it mainly for designing and cutting stencils and stamps, as well as other die-cutting projects.

Silhouette Cameo Cutting Blade for Fabric

Just like with your scissors, cutting paper dulls the blade and you should keep a separate cutting blade just for fabric. This replacement cutting blade for Silhouette Cameo is exactly the same as the standard cutting blade, except it has a blue casing so you know it should only be used for cutting fabric.

Rulers & Small Cutters

Creative Grids is the only type of ruler I use because they have fine black lines on them instead of chunky yellow or green lines which I can’t see through no matter how hard I try. The fine black lines allow you good vision to get a very accurate cut each and every time. No guessing. I’ve used these rulers for over ten years and they are a pleasure to use. I have one in every size.
Omnigrid Invisible Grip

Although the Creative Grids rulers are non-slip, I also use this non-slip cling “invisigrip” to ensure that my rulers absolutely don’t move at all when I’m cutting.

OLFA 45mm Rotary Cutter

My favorite rotary cutter is this Olfa. It has a very comfortable handle and a handy lock button. It doesn’t take much effort to get into the habit of using the lock button after each use of the rotary cutter, and I’m sure I’ve saved a finger or two because of it.

You gotta have spare blades.

Rotary Blade Sharpener

I use this sharpener when my blades start to wear. It doesn’t give you a perfect edge, but it does extend the life of your blade significantly.
