Being able to trace designs in your cutting system’s software is one of the key features. At first, when you’re using a lot of pre-purchased designs or files that come free with your machine, you may not understand why. But once you start to venture out into the world of your own designs…tracing becomes so important.
With some practice, you can easily turn any file type, into a cuttable file…including things like your kids drawings, which hint, hint, hint…give you endless inspiration for teacher gifts, grandparents gifts, etc.!
Below I have a quick video tutorial for you that shows how to use the trace feature to edit designs. (Again, it can be tricky to get the hang of. Give yourself time to practice! You’ll soon see why it’s one of my favorite features to use!)

PS…For another project using the trace feature, take a peek at my garden markers here. With warm weather (hopefully) around the corner, it’s perfect timing to start prepping for planting!
