Default how do you cut fabric with a cricut?

i tried last night and the material wouldn't stay put. do i need a new sticky pad thing? i bought mine used but my friend said she only used it a few times. do i need to do anything else to the material to keep it still? thanks!!

Make sure you use Heat-n-Bond to adhere your fabric. Then put on your mat and cut with the pressure on 3 and do a repeat cut.

PM if you need more help.

Wow I didn't know you could do that! What type of fabrics can you use? Any one have anything they have made using the cricut?
Thanks

oh! okay, so just put the heat and bond on first so it holds it like paper. i'm not sure i can change the pressure. it's the smaller cricut and i didn't see anything about that. i'll have to double check. i did cut an m out of paper and the point messed up when it cut it out.. not such a clean cut. anyway, i'll practice some more. thank you!

I have the smaller cricut and on the inside you can change I think the cutter tool. I am not 100%sure haven't had it out in a LONG time. but i remember there being numbers on it.
hopefully someone can help more. I'll try to get it out during nap time if no one posts before then.

Mind if I ask what you are making? I am very interested to see what else can be done. I have used it for scrapbooking and have some vinyl to make wall art but that's it.

Not sure what she is making, but I know people use it to cut out letters and stuff to applique onto shirts, etc.
