Transfer sheets and a cutting plotter

Transfer sheets are a really fun and easy way to give your textiles a nice pattern. And cutting plotters makes it even easier! As shown in this video from Jadah Doll, transfer sheets are colored sheets with heat activated glue on one side. The glue doesn’t become sticky until you heat it up with an iron, so it’s easy to cut and place out on whatever object you are working with. These sheets can be used on most fabrics and even some non fabric materials. Be sure the material isn’t sensitive to heat though, or you might melt it.

We also get to see a quite rare machine, a so-called cutting plotter. While you can cut these sheet with an ordinary scissor, the cutting plotter is quicker, easier and really cool! Too bad it costs several hundred dollars. But if you do a lot of custom cutting, it may very well be worth it.
