I have been designing some fun Renaissance costumes with leather trim for Halloween, it’s easy to complete this project with your Cricut!
These projects are really fun to sew. We love Renaissance costumes and my son and I have always wanted to have a matching set! I made these frocks with a little help from my Cricut Maker. The costumes are made from the Simplicity Patterns line of historical costumes. The sewing isn’t enormously difficult, but the details do take a bit of time to execute. Read on!
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.
