[Video]How to Cut Fabric with the Cricut using CTMH Artbooking

Have you ever wanted to learn how to cut fabric with your Cricut machine?

Now's your chance - I have a video showing you how to do this below!

Today's "Trick or Treat" bag was made using the Close to My Heart Artbooking Cricut cartridge.  I made the following cut from the cartridge:
And then I got started on making my "Trick or Treat" bag (bag from Hobby Lobby).

Here's how to cut fabric in the Cricut:
1) Wash and dry fabric.  Then, using heavy starch, iron the fabric on high heat with no steam.  Iron item you are adhering the cut to.
2) Iron Heat 'n Bond onto fabric.  Be sure and follow directions on package of Heat 'n Bond (lower setting on iron to medium, no steam).
3) Cut "trick or treat" out from the CTMH Artbooking cartridge at 8-3/4" REAL dial size using the following settings: Blade at 6, Pressure at 6, speed at 3 and multi-cut it 2 times.  Fabric will be up on the mat, paper backing down on the mat.
4) Pull off paper backing on cut. Then iron as directed on Heat 'N Bond packaging.  DO NOT OVER IRON - sticky goes away if you do this!
Cutting and adhering literally took 15 minutes.  The most time consuming part was washing and drying the fabric beforehand.

  1. I appreciated your video on cutting fabric on the Cricut. I definitely want to try that. I like to make Fall cards, mostly because I love the colors and images (leaves, acorns, etc.). In fact, I'm going to make some this weekend!

  3. I have done a handful of projects with fabric. In my opinion, it really makes a difference if you have a new blade and on the type of fabric. But, I maybe could have screwed it up somehow. Lol!
    Would like to do some more projects soon.

  14. Fall is a super busy time for us ( harvest and all) so unless I thought ahead months, no I won't make fall cards, though I love them. You rock! With all the time you spend for your followers! It looks like a job and a half or two! Thanks

  15. Nay on Fall cards. I did make about 100 last year for a church group of kids for Thanksgiving to give to their parents letting them know what they were thankful for. Not sure I'll do that again but the thought has crossed my mind. Have a fun day!

  48. Fabric is one of those things I never feel confident working with, but your video had some helpful tips I haven't tried. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  49. This is such a fabulous project! I LOVE IT! You made it seem so simple and easy..I have never cut fabric before, have ventured into vinyl only a few times, but you make me brave enough to try it!

    As for fall cards... yes, I love to do them because Fall is my favorite season. Also it can be such a pick me up to somebody who's gone through the ordeal of back-to-school preps for kids or grankids. It's kind of a "look forward" to the upcoming holiday season!
