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!

Cricut Fusible Fabric!

Cricut Fusible-1

Hey there!  Have you heard the great news?  Cricut now has FUSIBLE FABRIC!  What is fusible fabric?  Well it’s cotton fabric that already has a fusible product on the back so that with the use of an iron or the Cricut EasyPress you can make your very own fabric applique projects!

Cricut Fusible-5

I wanted to make a little Cricut care package for a friend, so I cut out a Cricut “C” with my Cricut Maker and applied it with the EasyPress.  It was so easy and so fast to make this adorable miniature tote bag!

Cricut Fusible-3

Hint… you can find this Cricut Logo in the Cricut Library.. just search “Cricut”.

Embroidery Hoop with HeatnBond EZ Print Sheets

Hey there!  I am back with another project featuring HeatnBond EZ Print Sheets by Thermoweb!

Evie Hoop-1

This project came together so easily with just a little bit of fabric (I used fabrics by Windham Fabrics), an embroidery hoop, felt and some HeatnBond EZ Print Sheets.

Evie Hoop-34

I cannot wait to see this hanging in Evie’s room!  I love that you can personalize with colors to fit any room!

Evie Hoop-36

I am not an embroider-er (is that right?), but adding a few simple stitches added a little detail to the project.

Evie Hoop-32

You can check out the full blog post/tutorial over on Thermoweb’s blog.  (If it’s not live already, it will be during the day today.)
