I wish I would have done the cameo, but this cricut practically landed in my lap, so I'm starting a savings for one
I've had somewhat good luck with cutting fabric on the cricut actually, but I used sticky transfer type paper over the fabric and did the heat n bond on the back as well. New blade was important and I had to play around with the pressure setting and do everything SLOWLY! That stretch lycra is hard to cut and without a good sticky topping (like the clear sheet that comes off the heat press vinyl) it just rips the fabric. I also sprayed my mat down with canned spray adhesive.
Maybe santa is bringing my cameo because now I'm obsessed with wanting to make rhinestone transfers. I've been watching videos from The Rhinestone World. They are very helpful!
