Sketching Supplies for Silhouette

The Silhouette machines have some awesome features and tools!

One of those that is fun to play with is the sketching option with the machine. Whether that is for sketching out words or designs, it can do it all!

Today I’m going to share some of the supplies I’ve tested with sketching with my Silhouette machines.
