Cutting Fabric with your Cricut

Someone asked me about cutting fabric on the Cricut. Well I've not tried it so didn't have an answer so I shot over to You Tube and did a search and sure 'nuf, there were a few zillion videos over there tagged with Cricut fabric. The one below seams (pun intended) to cover just about everything so if you are interested in cutting fabric with your Cricut be sure to give it a watch and if you like what you see, head over there yourself and leave some verbal love for the maker of the video by clicking HERE.

  6. I use Heat n Bond *Ultra Hold* and it works better than the Fast 2 Fuse! AND...you don't have to use the tape to hold it down or put the fabric right side down. With the Heat n Bond *Ultra Hold*, you just peel off the back after you've ironed it on to your fabric and stick the bonded side down to that cutting mat (it's sticky enough to hold it down every time!) The fabric will not shred with a regular blade if it is face up with this stuff. I use max pressure, cut blade at 6 and use medium to high speed depending on the amount of detail being cut out.
