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.
Staying creative is more of a release that I need in order to function, at least that is how it feels. For my first major sewing project since graduation I wanted to make something fun. From university I have collected a small array of material, which included this fun glow in the dark monsters print. Yes, I did use a pattern to ease back in, if you would like to know the exact number let me know.
