These projects are really fun to sew. We love both medieval and Renaissance costumes and my son and I have always wanted to have a matching set!

The Cricut Maker can cut all kinds of things, but I am excited to try cutting leather with it. Using Geniune Leather calls for a different blade a few special modifications to the cutting machine. This video shows the basics of what to do.
