I’ve had my Cricut Maker for a few years now and my excitement from it continues to grow! The biggest thing the Cricut Maker has given me it empowerment. I can make almost ANYTHING with it, from quilts to wooden projects! In this post I’m sharing my TOP 10 projects using the Cricut Maker from the past year or so with a focus on projects with fabric, felt and sewing! As Cricut expands the blade offerings, the Maker becomes more and more versatile. It’s truly a machine you can add on to with different acc essories and materials!

These fabric notion boxes are step one in organizing your sewing supplies! They are incredibly easy to make and so fun to cut out. The Cricut Maker not only cuts the fabric, but also the felt interfacing AND iron-on vinyl wording! If you have drawers in your sewing space, these shallow boxes will fit right in and make you smile every time you see them!
These quick quarter keepers require faux leather and a keyring! They slip right onto your keys so you always have a quarter for the shopping carts at Aldi. These have been downloaded over 1000 times – such a great gift to give! The Cricut Maker cuts out faux leather like BUTTER, it’s so smooth and even cuts the quarter slit!

Infusible ink launched in the fall and it is SO AMAZING. You will love adding ink to your sewing projects with this technology! The Cricut Maker cuts sheets of ink in the pattern of your choice and then you just apply it to your polyester based fabrics with heat! The Mermaid Onesie is a must for every baby shower!

You’ll be “sew happy” to sit down to your machine with this padded machine mat organizer! Four little pockets on the front plus some cute sewing designs make it functional and adorable! The Cricut Maker cuts the fabric, appliqués and iron-on designs! Get the instructions here!
I can’t even with these little llamas! They are the perfect holders for your bias tape, ribbons and trims! I love how cute and bundled up they look with the trim! I used chipboard for this which is a great material, it’s so sturdy. See how to make these + 9 other sewing room organization hacks here!
Holographic iron-on vinyl is so shiny and perfect for cosplay and costumes! One of the great things about iron-on vinyl is that you can use it to customize a fabric before you sew with it, or even after. For this mermaid tail project, I used the Cricut Maker to cut the Holographic Vinyl, then used the EasyPress to apply it to white fabric yardage. Then I made it into a mermaid tail for the perfect shiny costume!
You’ll love these silly llama pillows! They are punny and clever – perfect for a reading nook! I used a faux leather, felt, iron-on and fabric to make these – all cut with the Cricut Maker! The list of materials that the Maker can cut is extensive! Read this post to see a video of the Maker cutting everything from interfacing to leather!
I posted this project last week and it’s already one of my favorites. These sweet phrases can be added to these heart pillows for breast cancer recovery before sewing! You can also create iron-on labels or logos with this technique!
I made these Unicorn Hair Clip Valentines last year as a non-candy alternative. I burnt my fingers a few times with the glue gun but I still say it was worth it! Cutting felt with the Cricut Maker is amazing because you can cut so precisely and perfectly!
And finally this storage box is probably one of my most useful projects! I used a basic plastic bead organizer to create a spot for every single machine foot. It’s so useful because sometimes the feet look similar and I can’t tell them apart. It is great to give every item a specific place so you always know where it is. Get this project HERE!
