The cutting out of fabric

We are having our fabric printed as the actual pieces that will be sewn together, rather than a separate "marker" that will be placed on top of the fabric that is all one pattern. Our designs are engineered prints which means where they fall on the bag is important. It also allows us to have smaller fabric print runs and a greater variety of colors and patterns. (However, it is not the cheapest way to go.) So here we are with a new sample shipment of pieces. We go through many cutting blades on this thick canvas.
