Let's Get Making! - Project Nursery

This summer,Cricut let us in on a huge secret they had been keeping, and I could not be more thrilled to share the exciting news with the Project Nursery community. Meet the Maker!

I know what you are thinking, what’s different? The answer, EVERYTHING! Thisrevolutionary cutting machine has changed the game forever. It gives users more tools, more materials and more opportunities to make the things we love. It gives us the power to make things we never knew we could. Ever want to make a quilt for your baby? Or sew an outfit? Now YOU can! The machine cuts everything from tissue paper to balsa wood. Seriously, how amazing is that? Watch this video from Cricut to see the new Maker in action.

I had the honor and pleasure of being in the room when the machine was first revealed. It was nothing short of magical. The energy and excitement literally had people moved to tears. I was witnessing a change within the craft industry. With the release of the Maker, Cricut transformed me from a crafter to a maker.

The machine comes with a rotary blade that can cut fabric and felt, just to name a few. I found it mesmerizing just to watch the blade at work. Take a look below to see how the Maker cut felt like a boss.

There is also a deep knife blade that will be released this fall. The blade is sold separately, but I highly recommend the purchase as this will allow you to cut material likebalsa wood and leather.

Now here is the best partthe machine can cut fabric ΑND draw the seam lines on for you. ΑMΑZING! Prior to using the Maker I had never even threaded a needle. This machine opened the door for me to the world of sewing. Yes, I still need to learn to thread my sewing machine, but Cricut has made the rest of the learning curve a whole lot shorter. Cricut now has over 100+ sewing patterns loaded into theirdesign space, so all you have to do is select and click.

I created my first sewing project while at the Cricut Headquarters, and during their launch event, I watch hundreds of people who were once intimidated by sewing machines make projects of their own. My favorite moment was when one woman held up her masterpiece (a makeup bag) and yelled, Its not perfect, but its mine. It was moving.

Stay tuned because soon we’ll be releasing a roundup of some of our favorite projects people have created with the Maker. Here is small butterfly headband I made at the Cricut event.

We can’t wait to see what you make!
