Cricut Maker Review – It Cuts Fabric!

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.

Wondering what is the difference between the Cricut Maker and older models? Looking for a thorough Cricut Maker review? Check out this post sharing the pros and cons of the new machine, how it compares to the Explore Air 2, and see thoughts on the new fabric washable pen. See a test of several types of fabric that it can cut, too! The new digital cutting machine on the block and why you should (or shouldn't) try it out.

Last year, I got the chance to try out the Explore Air 2 from Cricut (I made this upcycled memory game) and this year I’m trying out their newest machine. I’m sharing this Cricut Maker review to give you an idea of what this machine can do that others can’t, things I did and didn’t like, as well as some ideas for potential projects! I tend to focus on fabric, felt, and embroidery crafts so that’s the frame of reference that I’m coming from. Since I received it in exchange for two blog posts, I’m obviously not going to be completely unbiased, but I do always try to share a balanced viewpoint in anything I review.

My kids are crazy for dinosaurs and I thought I’d make them matching DIY Valentine’s Day shirts! I love simple graphic appliques; I think they look cute even past the holiday and are fast and easy to make. If I’m being honest, they would’ve preferred a T-Rex, but I didn’t have the patience to draw all those little claws and curves! I have a free download for the heart filled dinosaur applique; you can either use a vinyl cutting machine like I did, or stay thrifty and use freezer paper.

Growing up, my Mom always made little Valentine’s Day gifts and cards for us and I’ve tweaked that tradition into making a DIY Valentine’s Day Shirt for my kids instead. I appreciate having a fun little holiday to break up the winter blahs, put up some festive decorations, and have an excuse to eat candy. I haven’t blogged each year’s shirt (and one year my Mom made them!) but in the past I’ve shared a dump truck valentine shirt and an upcycled valentine shirt.
