Have you used the Cricut machine to draw on fabric yet? It’s super fun! I made an embroidery transfer using the Cricut® Color Inks to draw my image instead of cutting it out. See more inspiration by Toni Roberts at DesignDazzle.com

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • Fabric that is easy to embroider
  • Cricut® Color Inks

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Place the fabric directly on sticky mat. I use a fondant roller to help adhere the fabric to the mat (apply firm pressure). The mat needs to be sticky for the fabric to adhere well. Load your mat into the machine. Choose the image you would like to use, hit cut and the image is drawn on your fabric! It’s just like a fabric transfer. Imagine all the fun with the thousands of images Cricut offers ; )
Replace the cutting blade in the Cricut with the marker. Make sure to adjust the speed and pressure. Place paper onto mat to experiment on paper at first. Load mat, hit cut and the marker draws the images you've chosen! Remove the marker and replace the cap right after your project, you don't want it to dry out.
Once the image is on the fabric, embroider.
Frame your masterpiece in an embroidery hoop for a simple frame.
