Cricut maker + easy press new project + giveaway

hello Monday!

cricut maker + easy press new project
last week I had an idea that I could use my Cricut maker for…

red green sewing
you might remember that I have made Advent Calendars that had Merry Christmas embroidered on them…

I have my rows already to go…
but needed the Merry Christmas for the top panel…and I am not fast at embroidering…

I had one of those awe-ha moments…
why not use my Cricut Maker to design the phrase and then cut it from the iron-on I had??

I will admit that it took me a couple of tries to remember how to place the iron-on in the machine, but I did finally get it…
I made two sets for the calendars I already have prepped….

next I got out my Easy Press to put the letters on the top panels…

so I decided to adhere the letters directly on my panel…

    I love that we quilters can use the Cricut to work for us and simply at that!

    I think the Cricut is a multi-task machine! So many possibilities for creating!

    Well aren’t you smart using your cricut?!? Great idea! I love the foliage and flamingo print in your scraps. 🙂

    What a cute idea! I think that cutting text might be the way I’d get the most use out of a Cricut if I had one.

    Like everyone has said, you came up with a perfect solution to this part of your project. I was glad to see it in person last Spring. It is quite the useful tool!
