Purchasing a Cricut has opened my crafty possibilities to things that were not necessarily possible before so… when it was announced that two of my friends were expecting this summer it was time to step out of my comfort zone and try iron on for the first time. This post is not to say that I am somehow an expert now, however, I do want to share some tips. Surprisingly it was pretty easy to use the Cricut iron on vinyl, that being said I do recommend that you print out the heat guide to reference easily. Some of the designs I tried used different types/colors of vinyl which can be tricky. In order to prevent uneven heat issues press all of them at the same time. Often this can be overlooked but whenever you are giving someone a handcrafted gift do not forget to provide the care instructions to increase the longevity of the item.
If you have any questions let me know and I will try my best to help with your creative endeavors . On the other hand if you interested in purchasing any of the finished onesie designs below please let me know as well. The colors can be altered as all of the onesies below have already been given.
