Machines for Advanced Craft Projects
Sewing machines and edgers are essential for any sewing project. But, for some, these two may not be enough, especially when you want to do things efficiently. From time to time, I catch myself thinking that there’s a better way of doing these projects with a machine.
From Cricut machines to garment printers, these are some want-to-haves that can take your crafting projects and experience to the next level!
5 Must-Have Machines for Advanced Craft Projects
For those who aren’t familiar with Cricut, it is a piece of smart-cutting equipment that you can use to cut out stencils, patterns, shapes, letters, or anything you want to cut out. The Cricut is my favorite among all the items I listed down. If ever I enjoy quilting, I will be getting this in the future.
2. Brother Embroidery Machine
I’ve been eyeing embroidery machines since last year, but this baby is pretty expensive to buy in the Philippines. If I don’t own an industrial one, then a portable one wouldn’t be wrong too. Just remember that mobile equipment isn’t the ones to abuse when we’re making giveaways or mass production for companies. If you plan on buying an embroidery machine, you can also check out other essential points when choosing your sewing equipment in my previous blog post.
3. Fabric Button Maker Press Kit
Sustainability is an undeniably important issue today, but more than that, you might also want to consider your wallet and your customers too. Upcycling fabric scraps into your custom-made buttons at home is a lot cheaper than buying new ones, and you get to throw less trash. Plus, your clients are happy about those colorful buttons that you customized for them!
4. Ribbon Printer
I started getting curious about how I could print out clothing labels to offset costs in the future. That’s how I stumbled upon this ribbon printer on YouTube. This ribbon printer would be handy for branding purposes, or you can even print personalized ribbons for your project.
5. Direct to Garment Printer
The direct to Garment printer is a dream machine for someone who’d like to explore digital printing. There are a lot of direct to garment printers, but I think this one is more compact than the ones that I usually see. Using a direct to garment printer is not as hard compared to other methods of printing – even better than sublimation printing!
One day, I will own these machines myself! Do you have any other dream machines? Let me know in the comments section. For suggestions, you can talk to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also read more on my blog here.
