Default cricut and fabric

I thought I read on here someone was able to cut fabric with their cricut. I admit, I'm a little afraid to try! When I first got it, I tried doing felt, even with the deep needle (or whatever that's called) and didn't have very good luck at all...sad to say.

Is there a type of fabric that is better? Will sheers work (like organza ribbon) or better to do medium weights, like a cotton/polyester blend? Sorry for all the questions...usually I am a ! kinda girl

Use heat and bond on the back to help it from sliding and I have only used it to cut cotton (like quilter's wieght fabric) also I set the blade on 5 and put it on slow, also here is a disscusion about it on the Cricut MB
