No you do not have to be computer savy. You buy the cartridges and then cut what you want. When I made my outfit I cut the Mickey head and then sewed it on myself.
If you have some time check out youtube and search cricut expressions. There will be a lot of videos showing what you can make and things you can do.
You can find good deals on cricuts now through HSN and other sites. Google cricut expressions and see what the lowest price is that comes up. I saw one today online that came with 2 cartridges and was around $169. I got mine on overstock last year.

Good Luck.

Both. I use it for paper most but I sometimes cut cotton fabric with it. I have only cut out letter and simple shapes. I used the cricut to cut out the mickey heads I made for appliques. I just iron on some head bond to the back of the fabric and run it through the machine.

Here are some links

cuttin fabric

introduction to cricut
The above video is 4 years old but gives you the basics of what the cricut can do.

Ok now I think I need to really look into getting one. I love to craft but I usually cross stitch. Who sells them? AC Moore?

You can get them at stores like AC Moore, Joann & Michaels but I would suggest looking online. I got mine on walmart.com and it came with some cartridges also look on amazon.

I used the siser easy weed from H&H Sign Supply. It worked great. All those t-shirts still look great.

I loved her hair short but this is easier for dance.

What kind of machine should I be looking for? I looked on amazon and saw a bunch of different types. Looking for fabric crafts more than paper

morgansmom....how hard was it to make the pirate irons for the tshirt? I am assuming that you have to do each color separately and then iron them on in the pattern you like?

I am thinking of getting a cricut and would love to make shirts for our entire family for our upcoming cruise. Thanks.

Not hard at all. I'm on my phone now but I'll look for the instructions I used when I made them and PM you tomorrow.
