How adorable is this Cricut Maker fabric applique? I made this cute owl SVG free so that you can also make one. And today is the day I teach you How To Make A Fabric Appliqué with this cute Cricut owl.
I have been working on all sorts of stuff since I got my new Cricut Maker. My niece is having a baby so I wanted to make super cute owl appliques with my Cricut EasyPress 2. I also decided to offer you guys this same free owl cut file for you to use on your own projects.
And ya’ll this Cricut EasyPress 2 was a total game changer for the whole project. Making appliqués are so easy to do. All you need is fat quarters and some heat and bond.
Place the heat and bond fusible interfacing on the wrong side of the fabric. Then use your EasyPress 2 to heat it. Then upload the free svg cutting files into cricut design space or silhouette studio. Once you have your design cut out, put it together and iron it right on to your shirt or other fabric.
You could finish it with a zig zag stitch, blanket stitch or satin stitch but I find this step unnecessary.
I could see in my head exactly how it should look. I wanted to use different patterned fabrics. It came out of my head just how I thought it would look!
EasyPress 2: How To Make A Fabric Appliqué With Your Cricut Maker
Cricut EasyPress 2
I love that my Cricut maker cuts virtually any fabric and that Cricut design space makes doing something like cutting fabric and creating appliques such as this one super easy!
It gives you heat press or professional iron results in 60 seconds or less with its advanced heating plate design, the ceramic coated surface make for an edge to edge heat.
Then there is the safety base which protects the base and your hands from burns and also the Cricut EasyPress 2 has an auto-shutoff feature, that shuts it down after 10 minutes inactive.

The fun thing about this free cute owl svg file, is that it works with all cutting machines. and you get to grab the SVG, DXF, PNG and EPS.
I love to use the Cricut brand of heat transfer vinyl on all of my projects using heat transfer vinyl. And If you are on the fence about the easypress, I promise you it is the perfect complement to Cricut Machine.
There are both time and temperature settings up to 400 degrees. It gives fast and foolproof results and more importantly it is portable & easy to store.
Super Cute Owl
So I got the idea for this super cute owl because I saw some fat quarters that had these really cute owls on them. And since I know that my Cricut Maker cuts hundreds of materials I knew it would have no issue cutting these.
And working with the heat and bond was super easy for this DIY project with the Cricut EasyPress 2.
I can think of so many places that I can use fabric appliques. If you have a sewing machine, although it isn’t necessary you can stitch around your applique and give it a little added touch of something unique.
Cricut EasyPress 2
I am so happy with my machine, and the Cricut EasyPress 2 and bright pad just kinda set the whole thing off.

The EasyPress 2 now remembers your heat temperature and time settings when it turns off. The original EasyPress would not remember that, which may not seem like a huge deal, but it is a convenience that makes things a little quicker! It heats up faster!Sep 18, 2018
