Gemini - Cutting Plates for Fabric
Save valuable time on your softcraft projects with these clever Cutting Plates for Fabric!
These plates offer a fabulous time-saving approach to cutting patchwork pieces, or softcraft shapes as they can cut multiple layers of fabric with just one pass of the machine! So, you can use multi-media dies to create precise pieces for quilting, patchwork, appliqué and more!
The Gemini - Cutting Plates for Fabric set includes two 8.7”x12.5” cutting plates. They are specially designed to be used with the Gemini machine and will make your usual die-cutting plates last even longer!
To get started, simply follow the instructions to create the correct combination of your chosen fabric, multi-media die, Fabric Cutting Plates and two Clear Cutting Plates. Each of the Fabric Cutting Plates has a slightly different thickness, but don’t worry they’ve been engraved with A and B so you’ll know which is which!
Recommended Combination for Cutting Multiple Layers of Fabric:
- Start with the Clear Cutting Plate on the bottom.
- Place Fabric Cutting Plate A on top of it.
- Place your fabric to be cut on top of Fabric Cutting Plate A. (up to 4-8 pieces of thin fabric, 2mm/0.2cm maximum depth).
- Position the Multi Media Die, blade side DOWN towards the fabric, with the smooth side facing UP.
- Place Fabric Cutting Plate B on top of the smooth side of the Multi Media Die.
- Place the other Clear Cutting Plate on top of Fabric Cutting Plate B.
- Align the platform combination and feed it into your Gemini™ machine.
- Release your hold on the platform combination once the motor begins to pull it into the machine.
