How to Make Fabric Paper for Iron-On Projects. Fabric Letters. How to Cut out Fabric LettersAre you obsessed with your Cricut Machine as much as I am? I didn’t even know all the amazing things I could do with it…. I cut paper for a multitude of amazing reasons in my Etsy Shop, The Vintage Event. But I really started having fun when I realized I could cut fabric too. To do this, you must first turn it into Fabric Paper, which is actually very easy!

What is Fabric Paper?

Fabric, as we all know, is soft and can bunch up easily. If it doesn’t have a strong backing or is pulled taught all the way around it can easily bunch up, snag or even fray when running a blade across it. Fabric Paper solves that problem. It also eliminates the need to sew as it give the fabric an iron-on back side. More on that later.This technique is also how you would run fabric through your printer. All you really need to do

Why make Fabric Paper?

This technique is also how you would run fabric through your printer. But I most use it to cut out letters and then iron them onto another piece of fabric. Your crafting really takes on a new dimension when you can affix letters to surfaces without sewing!

How to Make Fabric Paper

The main ingredient is Heat Bond by the yard. This product is a roll of paper with double sided, heat activated adhesive.

I use Fabric Quarters which I first iron out and then lay on top on the Heat Bond.

Iron your whole piece of fabric on to the Heat Bond so that it is smooth with no wrinkles or bubbles.

Then cut off your remaining Heat Bond and you have a large sheet of Fabric Paper!

You can now cut your Fabric Paper into smaller sizes so that it fits through your printer or onto your Cricut Cutting Mat. I most often cut the Fabric Paper into letters and make my projects including this Fabric Letter Banner in my Etsy Shop.
