Still on the fence whether you absolutely need the Cricut Rotary Blade? I’ll help you make up your mind!
In case you haven’t heard, Cricut Maker is an amazing cutting machine that can manipulate materials as thin as crepe paper and fabric or as thick as chipboard and leather. The Adaptive Tool System™ allows you to easily switch out any of the Cricut blades for quick and precise cutting, including the rotary blade that I’ll go into detail about below!
Top 5 Reasons You NEED the Cricut Rotary Blade:
1. Cuts Fabric
Although fabric cutting is the most obvious reason to get the rotary blade, I felt it was important to start here. I mean, when you really think about it, how cool is that? The Cricut Shop even has beautiful fabric to choose from. Now you can leave the tedious job of cutting out patterns to a machine and enjoy what you really want to do…sew!
With the ability to glide and turn within a quarter of an inch, the rotary blade, by its very nature, will be more accurate than its handheld equivalent. Avoiding intricate shapes and patterns because you don’t want to cut them out with scissors is a thing of the past. Plus, if you use it so much that it becomes dull, there’s a Rotary Blade Replacement Kit that will get you up and running in no time!
Anyone who regularly sews knows how exhausting cutting out the same exact shape dozens of times can be. Holy hand cramp, Batman! The Cricut Maker Rotary Blade can cut 3 layers of fabric at a time giving your hands a much needed rest. For best results, I highly recommend also picking up the Cricut FabricGrip™ cutting mat. While you’re at it, might as well add the Washable Fabric Pen to your cart. It’s perfect for marking darts!
4. Cricut Design Space
Don’t know what sewing project you want to tackle next? Thanks to the
