Cricut Challenge: #4 Baby Steps and Fabric Cupcake
My challenge for today was to use the Baby Steps cartridge which is one of the newer Cricut cartridges to be released. I love the new format in the manuals where it shows you the keypad and exactly which key to use. My eyes are aging and I have a hard time seeing those darned tiny images!
There are lots of cute baby boy and baby girl images on this cartridge...as well as a cute font and some fun wordart.
I decided to use this cute cupcake image for my project today:
Since I used fabric yesterday I thought it would be fun to spruce up a plain old onesie for my new granddaughter to be. I purchased the onesie at Walmart for $2. They had some really cute colored ones but they were all soft pastel colors and the fabrics I wanted to use were bright so I chose a plain white one.
First of all I washed the onesie and the fabric to remove any sizing in it. I read that you shouldn't use fabric softener as the bonding material will not adhere properly.
After I attached the fusible bonding to the fabric I ran it through my Cricut and ended up with some pieces like this:
I am happy with the way it turned out...and it really was easy peasy!!!
