Looking for some gorgeous Cricut fabric projects to create quickly and easily?
Before we jump into the list of projects, it is important to talk about which Cricut machines you can use to cut fabric.
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 from the massive sewing pattern library and ask the machine to cut out your pieces for you.
If you're trying to expand your creativity by using the Cricut Maker, there are many other Cricut Maker projects that you can take on with endless possibilities.
You might also like to consider purchasing a Cricut Maker 3 Bundle which are incredible value deals.
Below is a list of Cricut Maker fabric projects that you can master in no time.

Using the Cricut Maker will make cutting fabric for making ornaments and Christmas stockings a breeze. This machine is perfect for designing one-of-a-kind fabric ornaments and/or stockings.
The machine has a pattern library that you can use to blend different looks of Christmas or holiday decorations. Simply use the machine to cut your pattern out and then sew it together – easy peasy!
6. Cricut Fabric Appliques
Although you'll need a bonded fabric blade in housing, you can also make a series of fabric appliques.
These blades have to be purchased separately but, once you have one you can make many different intricately designed appliques with your applique fabrics.
Important to note that unlike with the rotary blade, the bonded fabric blade does require you to have bonded backing on your material.

Another really clever idea. Why not make a beautiful dust cover for your Cricut Maker machine. 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.
Select the cover design from your sewing library and sit back whilst the machine does its magic. Whilst there are plenty of free patterns in the Design Space library, you might also like to consider getting a Cricut Designs Space subscription.
