My neighbor who recently got a cricut asked me today if the Cricut can cut quilting fabric. I said I didn't know but would ask here. So can the Expressions cut fabric without the deep housing blade or does she need that? Any tips you can give me to share with her?

THanks

Apparently it can. I have not tried it yet, but one kind message board user (LilMsG)sent me a pm with all the details. I will find her instructions and blog and give it to you.

Cheers

These were her fabulous instructions. You should check out her blog for her gorgeous clothes. She is a really talented lady.

I cut all my fabric with my expression. Here is how I do it.

I buy the fabric quarters from Joanns quilting section. They have tons of colors.
I iron on the Ultra Heat & Bond to wrong side of fabric.
I place fabric on Matt with the paper side down on(matt must be very sticky). I always use one matt for fabric crafts only and another for paper crafts.
I set pressure on high
My blade setting is on 6 (regular blade, I do not need to use deep cut blade)
My speed will depend on design. The more detail the design the slower the speed. My Hello Kitty was at high and my Abby Cadaby was on Low.
Once the pieces are cut, I peel off paper and iron onto t-shirt or whatever I am adding design to.
I always zig-zag stitch around my cut design to ensure they do not come off in the wash since they are childrens clothes and I want to make sure they stand up to the wear and tear.
I make custom clothes per order and my prices range anywhere from $60.00 on up and therefore I ensure they look professinal and stand up to many washes.

Please give her credit for the designs you do with these instructions.

Thanks so much

Jen
