Cricut cutting machines are a great way for crafters to create unique and handmade items. Cricut machines are capable of cutting a variety of materials, including fabric, so it’s no wonder why these machines have become so popular with DIYers. But can Cricut cut fabric and is it easy to do?
The answer to this question is yes, Cricut can cut fabric, but there are a few things you need to know before you start. To successfully cut fabric with your Cricut machine, you will need a few additional supplies such as the FabricGrip™ mat, the rotary blade and a light-weight fabric like cotton or silk. These supplies will help ensure that your fabric doesn’t move while being cut and that the edges of the cuts are smooth and even.
When cutting fabric with your Cricut machine, it is important to remember that the blade settings may need to be adjusted depending on your type of fabric. For example, if you are using thin or lightweight fabrics you should use a lower blade setting than what you would use for heavier fabrics. You should also make sure that your blade is sharp enough so that it will easily cut through the fabric without any issues.
Once you have all of your supplies ready, there are just a few steps you need to take in order to get started cutting fabric with your Cricut machine. First, you will want to make sure that your FabricGrip™ mat is securely adhered onto your work surface.
Next, place your light-weight fabric on top of the mat and secure it down with some washi tape or pins if needed. Finally, load up your design into Design Space before selecting “Fabric” as your material type and adjust the blade settings accordingly.
Once everything is set up correctly, all you have to do is press “Go” and let the Cricut machine do its job! After it has finished cutting out your design from the fabric, simply remove any excess pieces of thread (if needed) and then iron on an adhesive backing if desired.
In conclusion, yes Cricut machines can indeed cut through fabrics, but there are some extra supplies needed in order for this process to go smoothly. With just a few extra steps and some careful adjustments of settings along the way however, anyone can successfully create beautiful pieces using their own handmade fabrics with their Cricut machine.
