Silhouette cutting machines can cut fabric materials in one of two ways.

  1. The fabric has a stabilizer applied to the back
  2. The Rotary Blade is being used

Fabric Stabilizer

Silhouette offers an easy-to-use, no-hassle wash-away Fabric Stabilizer.

To use this product:

  1. Press the Fabric Stabilizer onto the back of your fabric material by hand
  2. Place the fabric material with the stabilizer applied onto your cutting mat -- with the stabilizer face down onto the mat
  3. Proceed to cut your fabric with a regular blade using your Silhouette cutting machine
  4. Remove your project from the cutting mat
  5. Wash your project to dissolve the fabric stabilizer, if desired
    NOTE: The stabilizer will stay in place until it is washed away. You do not need to wash it if it is not necessary for the project. Silhouette Fabric Stabilizer can be sewn.
