Cricut Iron On Apron

CricutIronon

We had the opportunity to try out Cricut’s new Iron On Vinyl, and we absolutely love it! Holly and I usually incorporate some sort of Cricut cut out into our pictures, they give it the personal touch we need, and now I feel the possibilities are endless when it comes to styling for our photo shoots!

Cricut asked us to use the Iron On Vinyl with a cotton T-shirt they sent us and create anything we wanted with it, as long as it is wearable.

Holly and I decided to do a 1950’s inspired theme and I decided make my first dress. I was pretty impressed with how it turned out and it gave me the idea to make an apron from the t-shirt and Iron on Vinyl. I was lucky enough to find this apron tutorial, but made it smaller than the measurement specified for Genesis. I also decided not to scrunch the apron so the design on the front would be more visible.

For those of you who haven’t used Cricut Craft Room yet, it makes your life so much easier! First I selected the images I want to use for the apron, in this case the bear from the Baby Steps cartridge, the Glasses from Mustaches & Glasses digital cartridge, and the bow from Rock Princess cartridge. I arranged the images and sized them big enough to cover the front of the apron. Before you cut remember to flip your image.

98% of the time I work with a 24×12 size mat (even if my image wont be that size). I like to save time and place as many of the layers I can on the same mat instead of changing mats or paper for each layer. I pre-cut the Iron On Vinyl for the images and placed them on the mat exactly the same way as in Craft Room. For the glasses, all I really needed was the front frame and not the legs, so I just made sure the legs of the glasses were placed where there was no Iron On to cut through. Remember place your Iron On shiny side down!

One of the many great things about the Iron On Vinyl is that you can layer it! There are two types, Iron On Lite and Iron On Glitter, you can layer Lite on Lite or Lite on Glitter, but you can NOT layer over the Iron On Glitter. Make sure to let it cool between layers and press down with the iron instead of moving the iron around the vinyl.
