Tips for cutting fabric on the cricut machine?

Hi 🙂 I am wanting to try out some applique, and wanted to cut out shapes on my cricut machine. I have looked online for some tips or tutorials, but haven't really found anything.
I am wanting to know what blade I use, regular or deep. How fast I should cut, and what to set the pressure to.
I will most likely be cutting out thinner fabric, so I doubt I'll need the deep blade. Would I meed a new mat as well?
Any other tips would be wonderful!

The video covers all that is basic.

Save the paper that you peel from the fusible and use it under and over the fabric to protect the ironing board cover and iron from adhesive build-up.

You can also use a temp spray adhesive and paper to stabilize fabrics that you do not want to fuse to another item.

You may need a Tera Cotta pot. You will also need several knobs to make it look real. Paint them in whatever color you would like them to be and let it dry. You can add a lid and also paint that if you choose to. When it is already dry, you can then start gluing the whole deal together. You need to glue the knobs if you want it to have them. And then you also have to glue the pot to a base. The base may be another pot or it can be a stand or pedestal that you have lying around. Or else, the whole thing would already be ready to put on top of a table. The lid need not be glued or else you cannot fill your machine with the things you would like to fill it with.
