    I have used my Cricut Express to cut material. You have to Iron on fussable webbing before you cut it. Make sure you set the speed to low to keep it from pulling on the fabric. It works great for me.

    I use mine for cutting fabric for appliqué. You will need to bond the fabric to heat and bond. Then take the paper off and put the fusible side down. Use a new blade and keep that blade just for fabric. A good new mat helps too. Or one restuck with a zig pen. It works pretty well. Really intricate things may have issues but most things will be fine.
