Want to try cutting fabric with your Cricut Maker or Air 2?
These 10 fantastic sewing patterns are a great way to get started.
If you get want to get really fancy, you can (for example) cut the fabric with the Cricut Maker, apply some iron-on with your Cricut heat press, and then stitch it all up with something like the Janome HD100!
Cricut Sewing Patterns
One of the best sources of Cricut sewing patterns is Design Space. If you are a member of Cricut Access you have access to them already! You can see some of the fun projects pictured above.
These sewing projects are a real labor of love… you have to find a pattern, cut out the fabric, sew or stitch everything together, and then possibly decorate it with HTV… it takes time, but it’s worth it!
For most, if not all of these projects, it’s best to use the pink Cricut Fabric Grip Mat. This is designed to better withstand the Rotary Blade, and is the best for holding fabric in place.
The Rotary Blade, which comes included with the Cricut Maker, is used for most Cricut fabric projects. The Rotary Blade cannot be used with the Explore Air 2, so if the project needs it, you’ll need a Maker machine.
Some of the projects listed below only require the fine point blade, so you can use the Air 2 for those ones! More about Cricut Blades here.
And finally, before we get into it, check out these Cricut Fabric Samplers – they’ve got some really nice sets available for the types of projects we’re sharing below!
This is a SVG pattern for digital download and is designed to be cut in felt with the Cricut Maker (and can also be cut with the Explore Air 2). You don’t need a sewing machine but an embroidery needle will do the job!
