Default Re: Should I buy a Cricut or ...

Yes you absolutely need the cutting mats. I buy the 12x24 mats b/c I cut vinyl. I have cut fabric w/ mine, but I'd rather do it by hand. Sometimes the machine can catch the fabric and then you've wasted some. But I won't make that same mistake cutting by hand . If you do try it, you need to add the stabilizer first. The mats are sticky. Whatever you're cutting goes on the mat (paper, vinyl, fabric, does NOT cut felt) and then the mat feeds through while the blade cuts your design. I just used my cricut for the templates and still cut by hand. So if you're only wanting it to cut fabric, it's not worth the money.
