Hello and welcome to the third in a series of blogs all about the Cricut machines. Today I am using the Cricut Easy Press 2 and Cricut Maker. I have designed this ‘heart lotus hanging” to really show off the gorgeous glitter iron-on. We use the rotary blade for a perfect cutting of the heart out of fabric and the regular blade for cutting the glitter iron-on. I would love it if you make this project along with me!
Check out the full video make below! I am working in my pop-up shop today below a lovely cafe so you will hear some working day noises! (its all part of keeping it real!)
Step 1: Gather up your materials:
– Cricut Maker (or similar) – Cricut Easy Press (or similar) – 2 x fabric 11″ x 11″ – Glitter iron on – Ribbon
– Stuffing ( I have used polyfill stuffing) and some dried lavender
– Sewing kit: Needle, thread, pins, (optional to use your sewing machine)
First up, let’s create the glitter iron on. Using the standard mat, place the iron-on on with the glitter ‘shiny side’ down facing the mat.
Send the lotus to the mat to be cut and then weed away all the excess glitter to reveal! Once this is done, set it to one side for now.
Next up let’s create and cut the fabric hearts.
Lay your fabric square on to the fabric mat, make sure your fabric is nice and flat with no bumps!
Now, using the easy press, attach the glitter lotus to the front of the heart.
Stuff with your stuffing and add any herbs you would like to add.
Slide in your folded ribbon to create the hanging.
Hand sew up the hole!
