Default Cricut Help!?

I have a cricut expressions for a year nowand have never used it. I know I am crazy right! I was woundering what cartridge that I will need to make the felt flowers? http://www.etsy.com/listing/61277949...ref=v1_other_2 Is this possible on a cricut? I know that you can do fabric on it. I have the deep cut blade and want to try these out. TIA!

Cricut doesn't do felt or fabric.

It won't cut felt, but it will cut fabric. You need to iron a stabilizer to the fabric first, then lay that on your mat and cut. You need to play with your setting though as fabric can be tricky, especially with small or intricate designs.

If you buy a program like Sure Cuts Alot (SCAL) or Make the Cut, you don't need to waste any more money on buying cartridges. I have had my Expression for 3+ years now and have only the cart it came with. I bought SCAL, which allows me to cut any svg file. I downloaded a free program, called Inkscape, which allows me to import images and save them as an svg file. Then all I have to do is open SCAL and import svg! There are THOUSANDS of free fonts on the web, tons of free svg files as well. You can download a free trial of SCAL, and I am sure you can with MTC as well. You can at least see if you like the program before you buy. Beware, if you cut something in the free trial, small horizontal slits will be made throughout your design, because it is only a trial. HTH!

Oh man, that kinda makes me mad. I bought the cricut because the maker of the cricut said that it would. I am bumbed. I guess that I will have to sell it and get a sizzix or die cut. DonSt you love it when your misinformed by the manufacturer.

I have cut pre-adhesive felt on my expression and had no problem. Not sure if you want to use adhesive backed felt for your flowers though.
