This is the second in a series of three posts I’m working on with Cricut! You can see the first post, which outlines my first impressions of the Cricut Explore Air 2, here. Today I’m going to be walking through the process of creating an actual Cricut project using the Cricut Design Space. I’ll be working with a simple cut file I said I loved in my last Cricut post…a peace sign!
Here’s what I used:
And here’s how I did it!
Step 1: I’m using a peace sign iron-on cut file from the Design Space…you can find it by searching for “peace sign” in the Cricut Design Space search bar.
Step 2: After you’ve found the cut file, click it and then click “customize” in the bottom righthand corner. The peace sign will appear in your workspace:
Step 3: Drag one corner of the peace sign to resize it based on whatever you’re ironing on to. Since I’m using a bodysuit for a 3-6 month old, I decreased the size of mine to about 4.25 by 4.25 inches.
Step 4: Click “Make It.” (Note, you may have to purchase the cut file for .99 cents depending on your membership and access.) Follow the prompts to load your machine with the black iron-on material. Remember to put the material onto your sticky mat with the shiny plastic coating side DOWN.
Step 5: After you cut the shape out, weed out the excess material from the clear plastic sheet until you’re left with your design.
Step 6: Iron the peace sign on. If you’ve never used the iron-on material before, the instructions in this video are spot on.
All done—Let it cool completely before wearing or washing.
Super easy project, and the peace sign design can be scaled up or down for any article of clothing. This project only took me about 30 minutes from start to finish, too, which is pretty good considering this is the first time I’ve worked with Cricut’s iron-on material. What do you think? Who wants a cute bodysuit?!
