How to Create Cut Files from Drawings

Did you know you can use your very own handmade drawings to create cut files you can cut with your Cricut?

I draw this “shop girl” on my Ipad and changed her into a cut file which I was then able to cut out in Cricut Iron On.  I used my EasyPress to make this adorable one of a kind tote bag!  Fun, huh!

I did the same thing with this little cutie patootie!  She will look so cute on Evie’s PJ set.

You don’t need to know how to draw, really.  I found an image online and used that for inspiration to redraw and create this one.

This little lady I did draw freehand, and let me just say… I can’t draw, but the app makes it possible to draw, erase, draw it again…. erase it again… and so on.  Believe me, I did plenty of both!

How fun would it be to have your kids create a drawing, import it into Cricut Design Space, and then iron the design onto a cute tote bag for grandma?  I would love to receive a gift like that.  Wouldn’t your kids think it awesome to sport a shirt with their very own creation?

So, are you ready for a tutorial?  I cannot wait to see what you make!

Glasses Case with the Cricut & HeatnBond

Sunglass Case TOW-5

Summer is upon us and that means, most likely, I will be losing yet another pair of sunglasses any day now!  In an attempt NOT to lose my glasses, I have created a super easy (beginner sewing) pattern for you to keep those babies safe!

I mean, really, how can you misplace this colorful pouch (Fabric by Windham Fabrics).

Sunglass Case TOW-10

I used HeatnBond Fusible Fleece and HeatnBond Fusible Craft Interfacing to provide this fun case with lots of cushion to protect your precious cargo.

Sunglass Case TOW-11

I created a pattern in Cricut Design Space and let the Cricut Maker cut the fabric, interfacing & fleece for me.  It really could not get any easier than this!  If you’d like to grab the cut file, you can find it here.
