Tips for Cutting Fabric with the Cricut

Have you seen the infomercial for the Cricut? If not, you can view it HERE! They do some unusual things with the Cricut on the infomercial such as etching glass and cutting out appliques. For those of you interested in quilting also, check out the infomercial to see them make a piecing. Also know that it is a little more complicated than it initially appears (isn't everything??).

Because of the complication, Psychomoms.com has compiled a list of tips for cutting fabric with the Cricut. Click HERE! to see all those tips!

  1. Hi
    I just found your blog and love all the information you have on it about the Cricut. Personally I love sewing, I just ordered a Cricut Expression to cut fabric.

    I know it's weird to spend that amt of money for fabric cutting. But I also thought that it is a good investment since my daughter will be start Kindergarten next year.

    I have no idea what I'm getting myself into; it was a major impulse buy. I've never seen that infomercial before. I was wondering if you had any information about the glass etching?

  2. Go out here to see a video on etching glass with the Cricut:

    The etching cream you want is called Armour Etch and they sell it at Michaels and Joanns. USE a coupon because it is pricey without it ($8-9 for a small bottle without the coupon).

    You will love the Cricut! It is so much fun! Head over to cricut.com to watch videos on how to use it and then sign onto the message forums to ask questions and get info from others. It's really fun over there!

    Good luck and I'm glad you came by my blog! Joy

  4. Thanks for sharing. My mom is a quilter and keeps asking me about it. She's seen the commercial. Now I can show her how to do it.

  5. I was hoping the Expression would be more quiler friendly. If one has to prep the fabric before cutting with the machine, it sure defeats the purpose of saving time. A rotary cutter and mat would be faster. I am afraid the cash spent on my Expression was not a good buy for quilting. As I do not scrap book. Cutting strips and blocks was my main interest. May sell mine, just used one time, just to see how it works with card stock. Which it did a very good job. Not what I expected.
