How to Use Fabric with Your Cricut Machine 4

YouTube Preview Image

Today I used regular fabric and stiffined it to cut it in your Cricut Machine.  We used the Paper Dolls Dress Up Cricut cartridge and had a really cute effect.  I’m excited to show you more of how to use fabric in your scrapbook pages, home made cards and many other crafts. Hope you enjoyed the video!

    Hi Megan,
    You said there were two ways to stiffen up fabric to use on the Cricut, one is using Stiffy. As I do not live in the US (Netherlands) I cannot buy Stiffy here I think. What is the other method you are using?
    Very imformative videos.

    Best wishes,

    Hi Megan. This is the first time I have viewed your blog and I am so impressed! I have tried cutting fabric with my Cricut Expression but have never had good luck. It always pulled the fabric and would never cut through. I had tried using Wonder under and was wanting to make personalized pillow cases but finally gave up and just cut the letters on paper then traced them onto my fabric! So time consuming!! Do I need to stiffen the material first before using the Heat n Bond or is it only one or the other? Also what are the speeds you use for fabric. I may have missed it on the demo. Thanks.

    Hey Angie!
    Thanks for stopping by! I hate when things don’t work out like you think they should/could and then spend all kinds of time making it work! ahh! I use either or Stiffy or Heat N Bond, I have never used both at the same time.

    Here is a quick little reference to cutting fabrics. In October Above Rubies Studio will be releasing a Cricut Cutting Guide which will have 100s of papers/materials listed along with all the settings and extra tips to get perfect cuts! 🙂 Hope you find this helpful!
