I have never cut fabric with my expression but have read in this forum that you need to stiffen the fabric by applying something like fusible webbing (the kind that has the adhesive and that you iron on to the back of the fabric, I think). If you search this forum you may find the post with the explanation. I'm sorry, I can't remember who posted it! However, if I come across it I will come back here and let you know Wink

I did a search for "cutting fabric with the cricut expression" and found a whole bunch of videos. They recommend fusible web, heat-n-bond, or wonder under. Hope this helps!

I always use Heat Bond when I cut fabric. There is a liquid that you can brush on your fabric, but I know people who have tried that & it just doesn't seem to work as well.
