Default Cricut expression, does it cut felt?

Would I need to get the deep blade to make it cut felt?

Mine does if I use a brand new mat and a deep blade and cut it on high speed. But if you have to use a new mat everytime, it is not really ideal.

I haven't used my Cricut yet, but is it b/c the mat needs to be really sticky? If so, maybe try some Stick & Spray or a sticky adhesive. Here is the link and a video about the product. I've never used it, but saw it in a video about cutting fabric with your cricut. I'll post both links. hth

Stick & Spray...

It does cut felt, but its tricky, you need to get the deep cut blade for it, get your felt, and iron on the back of your felt with that heat n bond lite, KEEP THE PAPER ATTACHED to the bonded side of the felt, now take the paper side and put it against the sticky side of the cricut cutting mat, works like a charm oh and dont forget, set your blade to the deepest setting, I also went at a fast speed which didnt effect anything

I have never dealt with felt. What do you cut it with?

It WILL but it's messy and can be quite tricky. If you have little to no patience like ME then forget it! lol

You will need to apply your felt to some paper backing like heat and bond first and use a different blade.

I was wondering the same thing! Good tips! I am not sure I have the patience, buying them might be easier for me!
