How Do I Use My Cricut SportFlex on Cotton?

Using a Cricut SportFlex machine on cotton fabric is a great way to make unique custom designs for your projects. The SportFlex machine is a great tool for creating intricate, detailed designs on cotton fabric quickly and easily.

It can be used to create logos, lettering, shapes, and more.

Before using your Cricut SportFlex machine on cotton fabric, it is important to prepare the fabric properly. Start by pre-washing the fabric in warm water and detergent.

This will help to remove any excess dirt or residue that may be present in the fabric. Then dry the fabric completely before beginning the project.

Once the fabric is prepped, it’s time to start cutting with the Cricut SportFlex machine. Make sure to choose a design that suits your project and that will work well with cotton fabric. The Cricut software will help guide you through the design process by providing easy-to-follow instructions.

Next, select the appropriate settings for cutting cotton with your Cricut SportFlex machine. It is important to use the correct settings in order to get an accurate and precise cut on your cotton fabrics. For best results, use a medium-pressure setting with a rigid blade and select a speed of four.

Once you have selected all of your settings, it’s time to begin cutting! Place your cotton material onto the cutting mat and feed it into the machine using the arrow keys on your keyboard. As soon as you press “start”, you will see your design being cut out of the material.

Finally, remove all of your cut pieces from the cutting mat and transfer them onto your project using heat transfer tape or adhesive spray glue. Be sure to press down firmly when transferring so that all of the pieces stick securely in place.


Using a Cricut SportFlex machine on cotton fabrics is an easy way to create intricate designs quickly and easily. By properly prepping and selecting the appropriate settings for cutting cotton fabrics, you can easily create beautiful custom projects with ease!
