This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.
Friends, I am obsessed. I am knee deep in making hats for everyone I know. Right now, I am planning to make one that saya “my hair is dirty” haha! Seriously though, this new Cricut Easy Press Mini is the cats meow! It makes creating small items so easy! Trying to create a hat using iron on vinyl is not the easiest thing. Something about that roundness of the hat really gives everyone grief. But no worries! I am here today to show you how to use the Easy Press Mini for all the things!
In the past I have shown you all the great things about the Cricut Maker, the Easy Press 2 and all the cool products like their infusible ink, iron-on vinyl and more! Today I want to share a fun new product I have, the Cricut Easy Press Mini!
Everything you need to know about the Cricut Easy Press Mini
If are familiar with the Easy Press 2, you know how convenient it is to use on your Cricut iron-on projects. Well, its gotten even more convenient with their Mini Easy Press! Cricut Easy Press Mini is the newest addition to the Cricut Easy Press family, and is a great companion to whatever size Cricut EasyPress you have in your current collection.
Not only is this thing convenient, but its so dang cute. All my kids had to have a look at it and my daughter squealed with delight upon getting to check it out. “It so tiny!” she said.
It is tiny, and its for a good purpose! Cricut Easy Press Mini is perfect for small and/or unique projects like hats, shoes, shirt sleeves, cuffs, and pockets. It even works great on stuffed animals!
If you’ve used the larger Easy Press 2, you will know how well they work on larger projects such as shirts, bags, etc. But, a hat or a pair of shoes? Hard, if not impossible. This tiny press fits in the palms of your hands, and with its point end(like an iron), you can get into tight spaces and create something professional and stylish. Cricut Easy Press Mini offers the same benefits and technology as the Cricut Easy Press 2: even heat plate and easy-to-use heat settings for effortless heat transfers.
So, let’s make some custom hats using this little gem of a press.
I have made it really easy and have a video with a full step by step tutorial! Check it out below:
And lets have a look at my first #cricutcreated hats!
I have always wanted a hat with my logo on it. And now that I have access to it all with my Cricut products, I whipped one up fairly quickly!
How to use your logo with your Cricut Maker:
If you have a PNG image of your logo this is really easy, you simply upload it into your design space account, and follow the prompts to turn it into a cut image. Its actually really easy, depending on the complexity of your logo. Mine is simple with one color and no layers so that made it very easy to turn into a cut image.
I found the cutest blank trucker style hats on Amazon. You can get this gray one by clicking here!
I also made this cute goat hat using this white one.
I had to make a goat hat…I mean, I am a goat mom! I love the way they turned out! These hats are super cute, fit rally nicely and are a good price!
Now, I can make any kind of hat I want….my design is as close as my Cricut Easy Press Mini.
You may find this funny, but I hate sharing pictures of myself on my blog! But, I found no other way to really show how cute these hats turned out! So, bare with me my friends!
Anyways, I hope you will try this amazing little machine out! Its so fun to create unique and customized items and there is no better way to do that than with the Cricut line of products.
