[Video]Cut Fabric with your Cricut!!

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 Close to My Heart Artbooking Cricut 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.  If using the Cricut Explore, set dial to "Fabric". 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.

  5. I haven't used the cricut for iron on fabric but I made dozens of Homemade Christmas Sweatshirts with fabric back in the early to mid 90's--they were very popular. I made many for gifts and sold some too--I may even have some of my favorites tucked away in storage somewhere. Thanks for the encouragement to try this with my cricut!!!

  6. I have not tried that yet. Your bag is so cute, I think I may have to try it.
