More Fun with Fabric

Ever since I heard about people using their Cricuts to cut fabric I've been meaning to give it a try - but just never got around to it.

What a shame!

I confess that part of what was holding me back was a niggling concern that it would be one of those things that other people make look easy - but it isn't. But it is!!!

Just iron on the adhesive reinforcement stuff (I used Heat n Bond Ultra - it came highly recommended during my research, apparently Heat n Bond Lite works as well - but needs some sewing to be permanent), peel off the back paper, place it on  your sticky mat and cut!

My experimenting resulted in this banner. Very pretty I think --  even if I did put the fabric pattern on upside down for a a couple of pieces.

The fabrics are from a bundle I bought last summer - full of lovely red and green patterns.

I see many banners in my Christmas decorating this year!


  1. I love your banner, so bright and beautiful and perfect for Christmas (I would never have noticed a bit of it was upside down either). Banners certainly do seem to be a trend at the moment. Crafty hugs, Anne x

  2. Very pretty! Lovely selection of fabrics

  3. Love your banner.... I haven't had a go at cutting fabric with my Cricut yet. It's on my list of 'things to do'.
