Default Re: how do you cut fabric with a cricut?

some quick tips I've learned....
*Fabric down or your needle will shred it!
*Use scotch tape or blue painter tape to hold your fabric down, just tape down both sides, removes very easy and your fabric won't slip
*Use setting 6 on needle and the slower the setting the less fraying.

Hope this helps!

For letters would you have to fold over and sew, or could you use fray check on fabric. Man I wish I knew about this a month ago. I would've made my little girl a birthday shirt.
Thanks

that helps big time! i made a couple appliques and using the wonder-under helped keep it still. then i tried cutting out flowers for fabric flower hair clips and the material wouldn't stick to the freezer paper. but i'm gonna try this method. thanks!!!
