I am looking into buying a Cricut for a specific need. I am making childrens' clothing with cute designs on them. The designs are my own and it is very time consuming (and mind numbing) cutting out the same shapes over and over.
Here are my main questions:
Can a Cricut cut 100% cotton fabric well?
Can I use my original designs with the Cricut?
How intricate of a design can it cut?
Which model would you recommend to do the above?

If the Cricut works in the way that I am wanting it to, it would cut my production time in half!
TIA!

I have never tried to cut fabric before, but I know it can be done. They usually recommend that you back it with a fusible web.
You cannot cut your designs. The Cricut cuts images from the cartridges that are made for it with specific designs on each one. There are many available.
All models do cut very intricate detailed cuts.
Hope this helps a little.

Flapper I would like people to know that I did buy from PaperCrafting Pro
and it is legit. You pay 9.99 per month to use the site to order and things
there are cheap. It doesn't have any virus that I am aware of. I did order
stuff from there and it was cool.So no worries.
