Cutting Fusible Web with the Cricut Maker from Craftcore

If you own the Cricut Maker, you know that you can cut a variety of materials, including fabric. But can you use it to cut out shapes from fabric that is already backed with fusible web and the paper liner for your applique projects?

Kari's Christmas Gift

Background:  I owned a Silhouette Cameo (first edition) and had pretty mixed results with cutting fabric.  I had some nice cuts but wouldn't have achieved that without some great advice from my blog readers.  Check out my paper snowflake project last year -- which was done on the Silhouette Cameo.)
