10 DIY Cricut Maker Projects Using Fabric
Here are ten DIY fabric projects you can create using your Cricut Maker. When I got my Cricut, I chose the Maker because I am a sewer, and I wanted the option to cut fabric with it. I started looking for projects using fabric and found quite a few. Many of them are holiday projects. I was not intending to highlight holiday crafts, but I just went with it. A few of the projects fit in well with some upcoming events for me, so I hope to make some of them myself.
These little baby books are so cute, and they look so soft. Since I have a new grandbaby coming later this year, I definitely want to make one of these, or maybe more than one. I think flannel would work well for this. I even thought maybe I could stick some kind of crinkly material inside some of the pages to make them more sensory. I love the images used in these books. Should I make one for a boy and one for a girl or keep them neutral? Hmmm. Looks like I will have to brush up on my embroidery skills, too.
This original project post was also baby-themed since it was for a baby shower banner, but you could use this idea for any type of banner. What I love about this is that all you have to do is cut out the banner pieces and the letters. You don't have to finish the fabric edges at all, making it quick and easy. Need a quick decoration for a party? I've got you covered.
Holiday alert! These bunnies are perfect for Easter. Using different fabrics that compliment each other just makes them more interesting. Again, you don't have to finish the edges. As a sewer, I really appreciate that. The little tags add a nice touch, too. Maybe you could put names on them instead of numbers, like the names of your children or grandchildren.
I am sneaking in one project that doesn't use a Cricut. It seems a bit like cheating, but when I saw this, I just had to include it. I'm a sucker for anything that looks like an American flag. Besides, it goes along with the semi-holiday theme here. Anyway, this wreath uses bandanas as the fabric, and you can use a pool noodle instead of buying a foam wreath, if you wish. It's so bright and flashy and super cute. I want one!
Please note that this is an older post, and some of the images show a name for our blog that is no longer in use.
Want a decorative pillow that nobody else has? Make one of your own! This project does involve a bit of sewing but nothing too difficult. I really like the white fabric with the subtle design in a neutral color. Of course, you could totally do something bright and colorful, too, depending on where you will use the pillow. How fun to coordinate your decor by choosing your own fabrics and designs!
This would be a perfect gift for my parents, who will celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary this April. I love the layered look with the iron-on adhered to tulle and put over the background fabric pieces. I can add whatever embellishments I want to make it appropriate for them. I had better start thinking about what I want to include. April will be here before I know it.
Another baby project to do. Can you tell what is on my mind lately? I can just see a baby holding these soft fabric blocks and squeezing them or stacking them...or putting them in their mouth, of course. Luckily, they can be washed. The black on white really stands out and would be quite engaging. I would like to try using bright colors or even different images, although the faces on these are adorable.
Next holiday! Don't you love these coasters? They are just the cutest. The hand stitching really adds a lot, and those Halloween fabrics are sweet. However, you could use this idea to make coasters for any occasion or to match your home decor for everyday use. Adding the glitter iron-on makes them even more special. I have not worked with that type of vinyl yet. Maybe it's time to try it out.
And now we have a Christmas craft. I have yet to do a wood pallet project, and this just might be the first one I try. My daughters love to decorate their homes for Christmas and other holidays, and this would be a wonderful gift for them. I could use a different image for each one with a different fabric to make them unique. (Now I'm really getting ambitious.) It would be so fun to come up with ideas for embellishments.
Here's another project for a banner, but this one is made of burlap. It gives it a completely different look, and I really enjoy the rustic vibe I get from it. You can use any color of iron-on vinyl for the hearts tor even any other image if you don't plan on making it for Valentine's Day. You can make it as long or short as you want, depending on where you will hang it. Now to find the perfect spot....
So, did you find your next Maker fabric project?
