I am so excited to announce that I have been chosen as a member of the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog! You can see my projects and those of other fantabulous crafters at
The Fantabulous Cricut Challenge website! I am linking up to their page for the "Something New" challenge this week.
As many of you know, my husband and I graduated from James Madison University. This weekend, they won the FCS Championship. We are pretty excited at my house! When I realized when the game was, it was too late for me to order new spirit wear, so of course, I had to make my own.
I turned to my new Cricut Explore Air 2 (Santa was very good to me!). Using the Extreme Fonts cartridge I linked to the new machine, I put it all together in Cricut Design Space. The T-shirt came from Michaels (less than $3.00 with the coupon!) and the fabric came from the quilt I showed you last time.
Choosing the "canvas" I wanted, a medium ladies t-shirt, I could choose colors and placement for the design. It was pretty cool.
I ironed some Heat n Bond Ultrahold on the back of the fabric before I cut it (apparently the "Lite" version is not strong enough, based on what I read). Another thing to remember before cutting is to click the box to reverse the letters. Helpful tip: Just like cutting fabric with fabric scissors, use a Cricut blade that you only use for fabric. It doesn't have to be a special blade, just one that you have not used for paper.
Next time, I think that I will be a little more brave and layer the letters. The possibilities are endless! I really enjoyed trying out my new machine with a new technique!
Thanks for stopping by today! Go Dukes!
