Has anyone ever cut burlap with your machine? If so how did you do it? I have never cut fabric before. Thanks

Haven't cut burlap yet but do cut fabric alot for applique with my cricut machines from the Expression, Imagine, E2, and Create.

Just make sure to iron your fabric on heat and bond or freezer waxy paper and lay it on the mat with fabric facing up.

I think burlap would cut much better with a pair of sharp scissors. I think a Cricut blade would just catch on the burlap fibers and pull.

I think trying to cut burlap in your machine is asking for trouble. It's rough and has lots of loose fibers. I would think at the very least it would dull your blade. But.... if you really want to start with a new blade and iron on heat and bond and follow the directions for cutting regular fabric. I would also use a little blue masking tape(aka painters tape) to help hold it on the mat.

Good luck and let us know if it works! BigGrin
