My apologies if this is not on the right board  Undecided ... new to craftster!!

I recently made a garland for a friend of mines baby shower, I got a lot of compliments and was asked by a couple people to make some for their friends/family upcoming showers. Each garland had about nine to thirteen 6"x10" onesies. I was wondering if there was an electronic cutting machine that would make the job easier because cutting them was a b****! And if there are these lifesaver types of machines is there one you would recommend? Are there things I should keep in mind.

Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

Welcome - the garland sounds cute.  Yes, I can see where cutting those out one by one would suck.  There are several types of electronic cutting machines and several craftster members have them - ranging from cricut to curio.  I have been looking at the Brother Scan and Cut myself, but don't have an electronic cutter as yet.  I have a die cutting/embossing manual machine and a lot of dies.  I will say one advantage of using a manual machine - if you have the steel rule dies, you can cut several layers of thin paper or fabric at one.  But then you would be limited to a particular die size.  I hope one of the others can help you out based on their experience.
