35+ Sewing Tutorials with a Cricut

Cricuts aren't just for paper crafts, check out how you can use your Cricut with fabric! Lots of sewing tutorials and inspiration for using your Cricut to embellish and create projects.

I thought of digital cutting machines as mainly for vinyl (on windows/coffee cups) and paper crafts, but realized how wrong I was once I actually starting playing with a Cricut Explore Air 2! You can use this tool to make so much more than simple applique shirts, so I rounded up a bunch of Cricut sewing projects: including ideas for kids, women, home decor, and accessories. Can you believe you can make a whole purse on this magical machine! I think all these creative ideas will get your wheels turning, I know I’ll be making more things with mine in the future. I have cut projects out by hand in the past, but a digital machine makes perfect and clean lines, elevating projects from ‘homemade’ to ‘handmade’.

This is the Cricut Explore Air 2* I received from a sponsored post with Cricut; you can see what I made under the ‘kids’ section below! Isn’t it pretty? No cartridges, it’s 100% digital and you can upload your own designs, which was key for almost all of these projects shared.

I don’t have pictures for all of them, but be sure to click through and check out all the projects that I’ve found! I did see that there is a Craftsy class “Craft & Create With Your Cricut Explore*” taught by Lia Griffith, would love to know if you’ve taken it since the reviews seem to be mixed.

  1. I’m a fairly new sewer (just been sewing a few years now) and I make reversible dresses for children in third world countries. I’m trying to sew and build up stock of my dresses to eventually sell. Thank you for this post on Cricut and Silhouette items because I’d like to eventually purchase one but since I’m disabled due to many health issues it will take me a while to save up enough money for one. Anyway I’m looking for advice about my dresses from someone neutral who doesn’t know me. I could use some advice! If you read this and are interested in helping please write me at my email and I’ll show you what I need advice on.
