From simple home decor items such as wall hangings and pillows to more complex garments like skirts and dresses, we have something for everyone.

Before we jump into the list of projects, it is important to talk about which Cricut machines you can use to cut fabric.

Where to Buy Fabric For Cricut Machines

Maker Machines:

The Maker Machines can basically cut any type of fabric. You can see the full list of materials that the Maker machines can cut here, however, it is safe to say, it will be able to handle the fabric of your choice.

This means you can use any fabric that you might already have in your stash, or if you prefer you can purchase a cute fabric bundle from shops such as Amazon to get you started.

Our Favorite Fabric Bundles on Amazon

In order to cut fabric on the Cricut Maker or Maker 3 machines, you will need to have a Rotary Blade and the pink FabricGrip mat.

I also find that a brayer is really helpful to help smooth out the material and as it is best not to touch the adhesive on the pink mat, some tweezers to pick up the material after it has been cut are useful too. Purchase a brayer and tweezer set here.

You will find heaps of inspiration for Cricut Maker and Cricut Maker 3 fabric projects below in our list.

Explore Machines:

The Explore Air 2 and the Explore 3 can cut Bonded Fabric, Bonded Oil Cloth, Bonded Polyester, and Bonded Silk.

In order to cut these types of fabric you will need the Bonded Fabric Cricut Blade, the pink FabricGrip Mat, as well as something to bond the fabric with. We love using Wonder Under, but you could use another type of fusible paper-backed tear-away stabilizer as well.

Important to note that unlike with the rotary blade, the bonded fabric blade does require you to have bonded backing on your material.

The machine is pretty pricey so you might just as well look after it properly to ensure that it lasts for a long time yet to come.

Whilst there are plenty of free patterns in the Design Space library, you might also like to consider getting a Cricut Designs Space subscription.

Which Cricut Machine Can Cut Fabric?

Cricut Maker Fabric Projects

There are three main Cricut Machines. The Joy, Explore Family, and Maker Family.

The Joy machine is designed to make labels, small stickers, and cards. It is therefore NOT recommended that you use this machine to cut fabric.

The Explore Machines can indeed cut fabric, but as they can't use the Cricut Rotary blade that is designed to cut the fabric you will need to stiffen the fabric.

So you will need to purchase either bonded fabric or stiffen the fabric yourself with a spray.

The Maker and Maker 3 are really truly the best machines for cutting fabric and we will discuss why in the next section.

Why we LOVE to use the Cricut Maker/Cricut Maker 3 for Fabric

We love using the Maker for fabric projects.

One of the major selling points of the Maker is that it can slice through fabric due to its included Rotary Blade. Grab some tips on how to cut fabric with the rotary blade here.

The rotary blade is one of the 6 blades that work in the Cricut Maker. This blade has a special gliding and rolling action (together with a massive 4kg of force) which allows for super sharp and clean-edged fabric cuts.

It comes with a fabric cutting mat, so you can cut all kinds of fabrics without using any backing.

Simply choose an item to make and ask the machine to cut out your pieces for you.
