Go! Baby Fabric Cutter Review

I was so excited that Accuquilt asked us to review one of their fabric cutters- The Go! Baby.

I couldn't wait to open it up and see what it was all about.  It is a nice, compact machine, and it comes in a nice little bag for storage:
It closes up nicely and opens up for use:

I have seen a few of these reviews on other blogs, and have been impressed with the many projects that can be made using these cutters.

It states that it can cut up to six layers of cotton fabric.  How great is that?

I thought about doing another appliqued shirt, but I decided to go a different route and see how it worked with felt, and I made some of these.

Using my Rose of Sharon die, the process couldn't have been easier.
You lay your fabric, or felt, in my case on top of the foam covered die.  I used felt scraps, and they worked great.  Then, you just lay the cutting board right on top of the fabric/felt and slide it through the machine, turning the handle as you go.  Takes no technical ability, and is done in about 20 seconds.

The shapes cut perfectly, and it even cut two layers of felt just fine.

Then I just took my shapes, sewed them together with a bit of embroidery thread, and glued them onto a ribbon covered hair clip.  I love the way they turned out, and it couldn't have been easier with the Go! Baby Fabric Cutter.
