Are you looking for a way to craft with your Cricut machine? You're in luck! Most Cricut machines can cut felt, and the Cricut Maker was specifically designed for fabric and felt crafting. In this article, we'll discuss the different types of felt, the blades you'll need, and the steps you'll need to take to get a precise and clean cut. Cricut manufactures its own line of felt specifically designed for cutting with the Cricut fine-pointed blade. This is a great option if you're just starting out with felt crafting.
DelilaHiris' felt patterns also come with their own files specifically designed for upload to the Cricut design space. When it comes to crafting with your Cricut machine, you'll need to make sure that your machine is connected to your computer. You'll also need to choose the right blade for the job. The swivel blade is available as an additional accessory option and you'll need to purchase it separately from your Cricut.
The more intricate the shapes, the harder it will be for your Cricut to cut it well, even with the rotating blade. If you're using a Cricut Maker, you'll want to use the pink mat when using the Cricut Maker and the swivel blade, as it applies much more pressure. This will help ensure that you get a precise and clean cut. When crafting with your Cricut machine, it's important to remember that it can be messy.
Bits and fibers will remain after cutting, so make sure you have a vacuum or broom handy to clean up afterwards. Overall, crafting with your Cricut machine is relatively easy. If you plan on doing a lot of felt projects, it might be worth considering switching to a Cricut Maker. With the right blade and settings, you can get a precise and clean cut every time.
