I've cut fabric on my circut.
To cut fabric you need to iron a fusible on the back side - something like Heat & Bond Lite - before cutting. Use a really sticky mat and make sure the fabric is secured to the mat well. I used high pressure and slowed the cricut down.
A lot of people use the machine to cut fabric appliques for quilts, tees, etc. Reen
