How To Make Leather HairBows With Silhouette Cameo

For the longest time, I have been cutting all my leather hair bows by hand. I knew it was a way or should be a way to cut them with my Silhouette Cameo. And what do you know, there is. Now, I’m going to share with you how I did so.

Resize to fit your needs.

The first step is by finding a template or pattern. I just did a Google search to find a template and used the trace feature in my Silhouette to resize my bow template. If you don’t know how to use the trace feature I have a post showing you how to do so. How to use trace feature in Silhouette Cameo!

Above you will see the proper setting to cut leather fabric with Silhouette. For the material setting I chose the Leatherette setting, the blade setting is 10, speed is set to 3, force is 33 and passes I chose 2. I also used the fabric blade also set that to 10. Once that is all set then go ahead and cut. Once you have it cut go ahead and put it together like you normally would.

How To Trace Using Silhouette Cameo

This is something I use all the time when looking to create something very specific with my silhouette. All I do is Google an image or import an image of my own. I import it into my Silhouette program and utilize the trace feature. Watch the video below to learn how to use this feature for yourself.

Easy Soft Baby Headband Tutorial

I have been working on re-vamping my website making these lovely baby headbands. I used soft elastic and a nylon headband along with felt and leather sheets. You first want to cut a 1″ piece from a pair of nylons once that has been done you will pull at them until they begin to roll and that’s it. For fold over soft elastic, you want to cut a piece that will fit the circumference of your baby/child’s head. The connect it with some hot glue. To create the bows you can watch the video below for complete detail on how to make these soft headbands.
