This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.
I have been working on all sorts of stuff since I got my new Cricut maker. My niece is having a baby soon so I wanted to try and make some super cute owl appliques with my Cricut EasyPress 2 for when I start making things for her.
I could see in my head exactly how it should look, I wanted to use different patterned fabrics and it came out of my head just how I thought it would look! I mean just look at them!
EasyPress 2: How To Make A Cute Owl Applique 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 EasyPress 2 has an auto shutoff feature, that shuts it down after 10 minutes inactive.
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.
I can think of so many places that I can use fabric appliques. Pillows, clothes, even shadow boxes. 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.
I am so happy with my machine, and the EasyPress and bright pad just kinda set the whole thing off.
I am honestly not sure how I lived without it all. If you try this project, please come back and rate it.
