Vendor Spotlight & GIVEAWAY: Slice Fabrique Cordless Fabric Cutter (2 of 2)

Reported by Susie Ziegler

The Slice Fabrique Cordless Fabric Cutter is a digital design cutter with design cards made specifically to cut fabric. If you work with fabric you know that sometimes the intricate shapes of other digital design cards will not work well with fabric which snags when the knife turns sharply to cut funny angles. Then when you go to sew down the edges of your cutouts, you’ll want to have gentle curves and simple shapes.

The Slice Fabrique comes with a power cord, 3 blades with an adjustment wrench, a sturdy 6″x 6″ tempered glass mat, a very small bottle of liquid repositionable adhesive, 3 6″x 6″ fusible web sheets, a user manual, and one Applique Basics SD design card. This design card has a nice letter font, basic geometric shapes and stars, some basic leaf and tree shapes, butterflies, a nice variety of simple flowers, hears, and a few fruits.

I cannot wait to get started with this! I am particularly excited about the easy to sew letter font. I cant wait to make letter monograms in cute fabrics! So the first thing I have to do is get the repositionable adhesive goo onto the glass mat and let it dry.

I’m supposed to use a thin layer of this stuff, but it globbed out of the bottle right away.

I am not exactly sure how thin a thin layer is.

Next I have to iron on the fusible web to the back of my fabric. Fusible web is a paper backed product that when ironed, can fuse fabric to fabric. The manufacturer, Making Memories, recommends that I use their fusible webbing. I had some small fabric charm squares which, at 4 inches, are a little bit smaller than the glass mat and the squares of webbing provided in the packaging. There are only 3 little sheets of fusible webbing in the package. Be sure to pick up some more when you get your Slice Fabrique.

I ironed on a square of their fusible web and I also fused another brand of fusible web to another one of my charm squares.

I pressed my square of fabric onto my sticky glass mat. I’m going to make a monogram for a little girl I know, so I plugged in the Slice Fabrique inserted the design card and selected the letter I need.

I set it in the center of the mat and pressed the button to cut. You can choose sizes of your shape from 1 inch to 4 inches and you can cut out a shadow of your selection or a mirror of it.

It cut super fast, but uh-oh… it totally did not work. It looks like the fabric was not stuck to the mat, but I’m sure I did a good and careful job with the adhesive. I tried again with the other square and it failed again.

Perhaps the square of fabric was too small. Next I fused a larger piece of fabric that could be held in position by the Slice Fabrique as it cut. Success! I got a very good cut out of felt as well using my other brand of fusible web without any paper back.

I did get a nice shadowed monogram too, but my cuts did not always work out. And I seemed to be wasting my fabric because I needed large 6-inch squares for each cut.

I stitched up a monogrammed drawstring bag. I really love the shadowed font, and it was easy to stitch down too..

The other side has a shadowed butterfly. Cute and easy!

We contacted Making Memories about our trouble with consistent cuts. They recommended we use their Slice Repositionable Spray Adhesive. The sent some along with some larger sheets of their fusible webbing which is very thin and has a stiffer paper backing. If you are planning to try your own repositional spray adhesive, just be sure it is water soluble! You’ll need to wash your glass mat and respray often making sure each time that your fabric piece is adhered securely to the mat.

If you are purchasing the Slice Fabrique, be sure that you also pick up a bottle of Slice repositionable adhesive. It is much easier to use than the liquid adhesive, is stickier, and more effective.

Okay, so now I really went to town with my applique cutouts. I was able to get several letters cut out of one 6 inch square of fabric, as long as the letters were less than two inches. I found that it did not matter if the fabric was fabric side up or paper backing side up when I tested my cuts, as long as I was using the spray adhesive.

When the mat seems to be losing its stickiness, wash off and reapply the spray adhesive.

I used some of my new appliques to embellish these fabric containers I made:

Remember, for durability, you will need to stitch down the edges of your fused pieces.

I already had success with felt, but how about with fleece? Uh oh…

I’ve been cutting with this knife for awhile. Perhaps I should change it. This was easily done on the underside of the Slice Fabrique. Since fleece is thick, I adjusted the knife so that it could cut more deeply. Success with both felt and fleece!

I got the hang of conserving my fabric and getting more cutouts out of each square.

Here I used an unsuccessful large cutout as the base for some smaller circles. I cut two, but then the third snagged. This was an off brand of fusible webbing and it worked pretty well, but not as well as the Slice Fusible Web.

Look how great it cuts twill, corduroy, and t-shirt fabric!


  • Great small lightweight size is easy to store.
  • Can be used without the cord. Holds charge for a very long time.
  • Cuts many types of fabric easily and very quickly
  • Designs are specifically for fabric applique and not papercraft which is often unsuitable.
  • Easy to use right out of the box.


  • Liquid repositionable adhesive is unreliable and there isn’t enough in the package. Be sure to use the spray.
  • It is hard to know exactly where the knife will cut, so there can be fabric waste. Be sure to have extra fabric on hand just in case you misjudge your cut.
  • I have sturdy fingernails so I don’t need a spatula to remove the cutouts from the sticky glass mat. You may need to use a spatula.

I am most excited about the happy fabric banner I made for all the spring holidays. If you can believe it, I started out trying to make it suitable for male or female, but it went all girly pretty quickly. Rick-rack and flowers have a way of doing that.

I’m planning to use my Slice Fabrique to make more banners and monograms. I might try embellishing some kids clothes too. The possibilities are endless!

The great folks at Making Memories are giving away the newest member to the Slice Family, the Slice Fabrique, to one lucky reader. Just answer the any of the following questions in the comment section of this article on this blog to be entered:

    I have not seen or used the Slice Fabrique… I currently use freezer paper and scissors. What I like about this method is that as long as I have a pattern, I can pretty much cut out anything – what I dislike about it is my poor skills in cutting out the shape so it looks nice and especially if want more than one image, I’d like them to look the same!

    I am a mixed media artist… I LOVE fabric – I have three quilts waiting to be finished 🙂

    Thanks for the review…this looks wonderful!

    I am interested in cutting fabric, and I think your trials give a good picture of the tips to use when doing so with the Slice Elite.
    So a couple of questions:
    1. This machine is the same machine as the regular Slice Machine–and it is the design cards that make it for fabric????
    2. Can the design cards for fabric be used to cut paper for scrapbooking?
    (I understand about the regular design cards NOT working for fabric)!

    I would like to give it a try….fabric gives a whole new texture to pages, that’s for sure. Now, I just hand cut small items after tracing with a pattern!
    Thanks for a great review and pictures!

    Excellent review- I wanted some insight into the Fabrique versus the Elite because I know some people can cut some fabric with the Elite. I can see the Fabrique is better for heavier fabrics.

    I have to share this with you because I LOVE LOVE LOVE my regular Slice! You NEEEEED the 12×12 glass mat. It is absolutely a necessity when it comes to using the Slice. You end up wasting so much paper or in this case fabric using the 6×6 mat because you can’t position the Slice anywhere because the mat is too small. To me, it was actually pointless to even try to use the 6×6 mat! I would seriously love to get to try out the Fabrique, especially with my 12×12 mat. Man, that thing is amazing! I love what you have done with it, and it definitely makes me want one even more! Thanks so much for the tutorial!!

    Great that you did this post to show more about this little cutie machine. I’ve seen them and have wondered exactly what they could do. It definitely looks like a nice addition to anyone’s sewing/crafting room. Right now anything I want in a shape of any kind I use my scissors to cut them out. Takes a long time so if this would speed things up and make them look better then this would be wonderful to have.

The Slice Fabrique cordless Fabric cutter would have made it so much easier and I would be able to be more pages done not to mention quilting:)

    I purchased my slicer and having a difficult time getting it to cut out letters for the name Lindsey. It took several tries for a few of the letters. I haven’t got the S yet. I am thinking about sending it back for a refund if I do not get better results.

    I am having a difficult time with my Slice Fabrique. I tried cutting out the name Lindsey. I had to try some of the letters several times. I still don’t have the S..and the y didn’t work as well as I wanted it to. I am thinking about returning it to HSN. I may give it one more shot after I purchase more fusible paper.

    I had a broken leg, and doing lots of crafting to stop boredom kicking in, because I had to keep my leg elevated at all times. I wanted some shapes cutting out and was wondering how I could manage this. My 11yr grandaughter had just come in from school. I asked if she would help. She cottoned on so quickly that once I told her how the fabrique works, she ended up doing it all with only verbal help. Apart from one cut she did an excellent job. That’s how easy it is.

    I do have the Fabrique. Due to a broken leg which had to be elevated at all times, and doing lots of crafting. I needed some shapes cutting. Wondering how I was to do this, my 11yr grandaughter came in from school. I asked if she could help me. I explained how the machine worked ( turning on and selecting pattern etc) apart from some verbal instructions as to size etc and one first mistake, she ended up doing it all and did an excellent job. Thats how simple it can be. I’d love to get her one, as a thankyou from nannie.
