Here Are Our Favorite Felt Buys

Here at The Best Vinyl Cutters, we have compiled some of our favorite free Cricut felt projects from bloggers all around the web for you to try!

With these easy-to-follow tutorials and step-by-step instructions, you can craft up something special in no time – perfect for either an experienced crafter or a beginner just getting started.

But before we get into the projects, let's just answer some quick questions about which machine you should use, which felt you should work with, and which additional mats and blades you will need.

Which Cricut is Best for Felt Projects?

The best Cricut to use for felt is either the Cricut Maker or Cricut Maker 3. The Cricut Maker is the best fabric cutting machine on the market for felt, because it can use the rotary cutter to help cut smooth clean curves.

The Maker machines can cut all sorts of shapes and designs out of the felt. It can also manage to cut some beautiful intricate detailed felt designs as well.

But even if you don't have a Maker, don't let that stop you, as many of the felt Cricut ideas we share below can easily be made with a Cricut Explore machine as well.

What Do You Need For Cricut Felt Crafts?

The choice of machine you use and the type of felt you work with can really make a difference.

Cricut Maker and Cricut Maker 3

The Maker machines are the best machines to use for cutting felt. It does a fantastic job and the great thing is that it can handle non-Cricut brand felt.

Make sure you have the following on hand:

FAQ's: Felt Projects With Cricut

Cricut Felt Projects

Below are some questions that are most often asked about Cricut felt ideas and about how to cut felt with a Cricut.

1. What can I make with Cricut felt?

Using the Cricut felt, you can make an array of projects such as home decor accents, kids’ toys and games, accessories like handbags and wallets, holiday decorations, party decorations, wall art, and much more.

2. Will Cricut vinyl stick to felt?

Yes, Cricut vinyl can stick to felt. It's important to make sure that the felt is clean and dry before applying the vinyl.

Some people also suggest heating up the surface of the felt with a heat press before adding the vinyl. This helps to ensure a strong bond between the vinyl and the felt.

3. What is the best blade to cut felt on Cricut?

The type of blade you should use depends on the Cricut machine you own. For Cricut Maker machines I recommend you use the rotary blade. It does a great job will all types and all brands of felt.

For Cricut Explore machines, I suggest you use the Cricut Fine Point Blade and stick to using Cricut felt only.

4. Can I use a Cricut for felt?

Sure! You can use the Explore machines or the Maker machines to cut felt. My personal preference is to cut felt with my Cricut Maker 3 using a rotary blade.

5. How do I protect my Cricut mat from felt?

Here are three top suggestions:
1. The type of felt that leaves the least amount of lint behind is the Cricut brand so you could stick to using that brand only.

2. To keep your mat clean while cutting felt, try this tactic: place transfer tape or contact paper (cheaper), sticky side up, on your mat first. Then add the felt on top of the sticky side. This is my preferred method to keep my mat clean.

3. If you don't want to waste transfer tape, you could use a lint roller to remove as much of the loose lint as possible before cutting.
