JANOME and Silhouette Cameo

Today we show a sewing machine train… cut out using the Silhouette Cameo – Janome offers all kinds of diverse products. The artist was Nicole Dumont, who uses her Silhouette Cameo for all sorts of occasions:  anniversaries, various festivals, seasons, House  and table decorations, etc… Here she shows a card thanking a seamstress friend… who greatly appreciated the card!

Note all the cuts, the choice of the colours of the cardboard and the originality of the mounting.

The hostess of a party has a family business: Honey so Nicole used the Cameo cutter to cut bees to decorate the table… very appropriate … good choice, Nicole!


In the following picture, Nicole presents an array of her creations using her Silhouette Cameo: on the three lines of music there is no notes but many letters for the birthday of her daughter; an OWL with ear buds from which escape notes. Cardboard 3D balloons decorated the room. What beautiful festive atmosphere. Note that the Silhouette Cameo Cutter is part of the decor!

But there is more… Nicole proudly poses with a dress that she has made with her Memory Craft MC120000.




It is difficult to find suitable sewing machine accessory fabric for decoration so why not use the Silhouette Cameo which cuts the emblems precisely from the fabric and much more quickly than with a pair of scissors which would not produce the same clean and perfect cut. Would be very fiddly and nowhere near the same good result as you get with the Cameo cutter. However it is advisable to paste these cut-outs onto stiffer fabric to make it rigid & more suitable for applique  to be applied in the hoop using ARTISTIC SEWING SUITE SOFTWARE.
