Guest Designer for an inspirational project- Crafting Misfit Bloghop

A New Season A New Skill. Crafting Misfit  is having a BLOGHOP

I was asked to do a inspirational project . It so had to involve my cricut, I have never used my cricut before for material, so that's just what I did.

 If you have come from  Meaghan  then you are in the right place. If you have not click here to go to Crafting Misfit's site and start at the beginning. She also has some blog candy there so make sure to visit! You can also link up your own project there.

The twist to this blog hop is that all projects have to have us try something new! Either a new project, a new technique, or a new material/supply. Thank you in advance for all of your comments! After visiting my blog please visit Karen
Now here is a small tutorial on how I did it, and I would like to say that if I can do this... anyone can.

I ironed on the Fusible webbing to the material (cute material hey) a little out of focus as I was taking a photo an holding the iron, it's harder then it sounds
 and cut a section out about 5 "x 5 " so I new I had enough, material for my love heart cut out. There was a couple of bugger ups, so just make sure that you have the material the right way lol 

Make sure the material is face down, your blade will shred the material if the other way. Now the blue tape is painters tape, great stuff for this.

I had this on multi cut, but it just didn't need it, once was plenty....Shape blade and sticky mat is enough for a great cut.
Now I forgot to take a photo of when it came out of the cricut but you get the idea. Peel the backing off the fusible webbing, and lay on your little suit or shirt, whatever you desire and then iron again. I will sew around the edge of the love heart just to stop the fray you can hand sew or machine it.

I hope you enjoyed this small tutorial. I have love doing this, first time for everything, and I had a lot of fun....Now all I have to do is find a baby to give this to, it's 0000 so a wee little baby. Any questions about what I did, please leave a message.

Suzanne said...

This is a great idea, I wouldn't have thought the cricut would cut through it. I have one, but dont use it very often, will have to start experimenting. Thanks for the inspiration.
