~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I've finally gotten a chance to use the AccuQuilt GO! Baby cutter this weekend - and it's AMAZING!  Let me show you what I've done so far...

First, the materials - the Go! Baby cutter, the die (I've used the "Fall Medley" one for this project), the cutting mat, fabric pieces with Heat & Bond ironed as according to directions - and we're off....


This die cuts 5 difference shapes, so I was able to cut what I wanted from each of the fabric by trimming them to the size of the design... here are the large leaf & pumpkins - getting ready to add the fabric for the acorn pieces & the other leaf....
 The next picture was blurry (sorry), but you lay the cutting mat on top, lay it on the cutter, crank the handle, and it comes out with these shapes - almost like magic - and easy as pie!


Now how is that for fantastic?  Super quick, wonderfully clean lines, easy as pie, and you can cut one or several at a time.  I only did 2 layers at a time because of the Heat & Bond, but I might try 3 & see if they still come out as great as these did.
All you have to do now is peel the paper off the back, place them on your project (for me, it's not a quilt, or wall hanging), I wanted to make a couple of zipper bags. 

As you can see, I used all of the shapes on the green bag, and on the 2nd one, I only used the pumpkin and the acorn.  I just love how quick & easy this was to do and can't wait to make more!

  I use these bags for my cross stitching projects, embroidery projects, in the suitcases when we travel - and small ones in my purse.  I'm sure you could think of many more great uses.....

And speaking of that, I want to give one of these away!  Leave a comment to THIS POST ONLY telling me which one you like best, and you just might be a winner.  I'll draw a name on Wednesday night, July 20th.  If you want to tell your friends via your blog or facebook, leave a comment with that link & I'll give you not 2 but 3 chances to win.  :-)

And stay tuned for my AccuQuilt Part 2 pictures - coming soon..... below is a sneak peek!


Thanks for stopping by - happy stitching & sewing!

I really hope one day to have my own Baby GO! - Thank you for showing your project - I'd not thought that I could use any of the applique shapes, but you have thrown so many projects into my head. Thank you.
I like the green bag best! Thank you for this chance.

Hi Amy! Pretty handy toy! I used to have a Cricut for scrapping, but gave it to my daughter (sure hope SHE uses it someday!) Anyway, I like the darker bag myself, and would love to win it! Hugs.

What fun! I love them both, but if I had to chose, I'd go for the brown one. I'll post on the sidebar of my blog as well.

Might just have to save my pennies for one of these machines!!

Thank you for the chance to win. A tutorial for the zippered bag would be great since I have no idea how to sew a zipper. I too love the green bag.

Beth said...

thanks for showing us how to use the Go Baby! I have seen them, but did not really understand their use. I love both your zippered bags, but I love the one with just the pumpkin &acorn on it. Please include me in your drawing - thanks for having it!

You know I'm not a quilter, but all this Go!Baby action is making me want to be! I just may have to have one of these before too long! I always wanted to be, but never trusted my calculations enough! Love your projects-fall looks quite enticing right now! Can't wait to see the next project. Please stich my name in the hat. Thanks for the opportunity!
