Iron On #Vinyl #Baby Hat with #CTMH #Cricut Artbooking

How much do you love that baby hat?!  Oh, so cute!  It’s easy too.  All you need is some iron on (heat transfer) vinyl, a die cut machine (or a very steady hand), an iron and a baby hat.  Need vinyl?  I like to buy mine from Expressions Vinyl.

I bought this hat super cheap at the Dollar Store last year.  I’m also using the Close to My Heart (CTMH) Cricut Artbooking cartridge and Cricut Expression 2 to create this sweet hat.

When you’re ironing on vinyl be sure to flip the lettering so the message will be facing the right direction!  I cut this phrase at 7″.  It was very small until I went that large.  The phrase and the sun can be found on page 53 of the Cricut Artbooking cartridge.  Here are some other things I’ve made with the Artbooking cartridge.

Put the shiny side of the vinyl FACE DOWN on the mat and cut.  Need help using vinyl with your Cricut?  You’d love my Cricut Vinylology DVD.  You can check it out here.

Here I am weeding the vinyl.  That means I’m removing the vinyl I don’t want to use from the vinyl I do want to use.

I’m using two different iron on (also called heat transfer) vinyls.  The green one has a clear backing and the yellow one has an opaque backing.  Learn about your vinyls before ironing.  With some brands you can peel the backing off while it is hot, others you must wait until they have cooled.  It just depends on the manufacturer. ;)  I cover my vinyl with a teflon sheet before ironing.  You can also use a a thin towel.  Next, I iron using the cotton setting.

    The hat is so cute Joy, makes me wish I had a baby to put it on…well, maybe not. I can’t believe you found it at the Dollar Store. Question, will the vinyl hold well during washing? The last time I tried vinyl, many years ago, it began to peel after a couple of washings, so I’ve stayed away.

    Hi Blue Rose!
    I couldn’t believe I found it at the Dollar Store either! Score! About vinyl in the wash. I think it depends on the fabric you put the vinyl on and what kind of iron on vinyl you’re using. These shirts still look awesome and so does this one…I washed this bag (probably shouldn’t have even washed that kind of bag) and it wrinkled and the vinyl creased and looks horrible. If I say it’s sort of a mixed bag, is that too punny? LOL! I wish I had an exact answer on how these things might turn out in the wash but I feel like it’s tough to be sure with all the different fabrics. ;)
    Happy crafting!

    Thank you for your answer, and the pun…too funny. I loved the tank shirt, might have to try that one myself. Can’t wait for you next project.
