Has anyone cut felt on their expression?
I was hoping to make my daughter paperdolls out of the stiff felt... then the clothes woudl just stick together without tabs...
but I am afraid that it would gum up the machine...
Any tips or advice?

Hello! The Cricut can cut felt, however it must be high quality felt. You must also prepare it with an iron on fusible interfacing to stiffen the material. Additionally you will need to use a Deep Blade Housing to cut with. I hope that this helps!

I can suggest Thermoweb for the interfacing. As far as finding good quality felt, try fabric stores! They usually have felt on the bolt that is good quality. Just stay away from the craft felt, it does not seem to work as well.
I hope this helps!
