A Cricut is a great way to personalize items at home. One of the most exciting aspects of this hobby is iron on vinyl Cricut. Check out this video to get beginner tips for using your Cricut.
In the video, Mr. Crafty Pants uses Cricut’s Everyday Iron On Vinyl, a heat press, and an ordinary blank white tea towel. The technique used in the video can be used on just about any type of fabric with temperature-setting changes.
To get started, choose the design for the towel. Use a particular program to create the design and send the design to the Cricut do cutting. Once the item is cut, it’s time to weed it, and get it ready to be pressed onto the tea towel. Before pressing the item with a heat press, it’s important to make note of temperature settings, requirements, and pressing time. It’s also important to know if the vinyl used requires a cold or warm peel. Apply the decal to the garment exactly where you want it before pressing with the appropriate pressure. After heat is removed, peel the plastic off and it’s done.
