IRON-ON VINYL AND YOUR CRICUT ARE MADE FOR EACH OTHER
Iron-on vinyl video tutorial
This iron-on vinyl video tutorial shows you how incredibly easy it is to get started with heat transfer vinyl and your Cricut
When it comes to Cricut vinyl crafts, iron-on vinyl is a natural progression from permanent vinyl.
Iron-on vinyl is similar in appearance to permanent vinyl.
You weed iron-on vinyl the same way you do with permanent vinyl.
The main difference is that permanent vinyl has to be applied using a separate transfer tape, while iron-on vinyl is attached to the heat-resistant transfer tape.
You won’t be after you watch the iron-on vinyl video tutorial
CRICUT DESIGN SPACE HAS THOUSANDS OF IMAGES TO CHOOSE FROM
Working with Cricut Design Space you’ll find over 100,000 images to choose from.
Alternatively, search through the Projects section as I did, and find a design someone has already created for you to use.
AS THIS IRON-ON VINYL TUTORIAL IS PART OF THE BEGINNER’S GUIDE TO CRICUT I’VE KEPT IT REALLY SIMPLE.
I chose a project for use on a pillow cover. The design has clover leaves. There’s one sparkly four-leaf clover, and I like the idea of a lucky pillow, so that is the design I use for my tutorial.
Feel free to use any design you like.
Becoming familiar with, and enjoying creating crafts using iron-on vinyl is the focus of this tutorial.
As you browse the projects section of Cricut Design Space, you’ll get lots of inspiration. You may decide to try your hand at embellishing a t-shirt or tote bag.
It’s really up to you.
The method of applying your iron-on vinyl stays the same regardless of the item you place your design on to.
I MADE MY PILLOW COVER
Having a pillow that needed a new cover, I made a simple slipcover from plain fabric as my starting point.
If you’re thinking of starting with a pillow cover too, but you don’t have a plain cover to use, see the step-by-step guide to making a simple slipcover here.
NOW YOU HAVE YOUR COVER OR OTHER ITEM TO ADD A DESIGN TO
You have your pillow cover (or t-shirt) ready to decorate.
Then let’s get over to the video and watch the tutorial.
