Cutting Fabric with the Cricut

Well I hope you all had a wonderful Easter and today is April Fools! I have to admit that I completely forgot about April Fools Day and I am not generally a prankster so this must be the reason why I usually forget about April Fools!

My family and I had a great Easter and I even managed to squeeze in some crafting! My main goal this weekend was to try to cut fabric with my Cricut this weekend. I have some great plans for some home decor and adding fabric to a scrapbooking layout could always give it some added texture.

The wonderful Cara Miller sent me this great link which of course I immediately pinned. I followed the decorations to the tee and I was able to cut out these fantastic letters out of some old Spring looking fabric that I had laying around the house.

The only problem I had, was that I couldn’t get it to make intricate cuts but I have a feeling that if I had a better quality fabric that intricate cuts would not have been a problem!

I made this cute little T-Shirt for my little one using the free Easter cuts in the Cricut Craft Room and just ironed the letters right on the shirt. Easy as Pie!

You can find the instructions right here! These instructions were so easy to follow and if you buy the small package of Heat and Bond it is only about $3 dollars at Joann’s.

  1. Cool!

  2. Awesome advice! I use crafts and art with many of my clients to help explore their creativity! Advice is always welcome. What a wonderful blog!

  3. I have always wanted a Cricut machine. I just keep putting it off, but I believe once I clean out my craft room and hold my garage sale, I may have the money for one. I love the t-shirt idea! Thanks!

    • I have so much fun with my Cricut Kay. I have the E2 and it does so much I love using it for my scrapbook layouts and cards and now cutting fabric :)

  4. Wow, how beautiful that looks! My creative side tends more towards words, with baking being about as practical as I can get so I am very impressed. Love the colours too, just right for the time of year.
