Create monogrammed mittens quickly and easily using the Cricut EasyPress Mini!
Where we live (Houston, TX) we basically has 3 seasons: super hot, perfect, and cool. Our annual temperature is around 76 degrees and our “winter” is very mild. We do still have some winter clothes that we pull out any time we travel to somewhere with real seasons! On a recent trip to JOANN, I found adorable mittens for little kids. Since we don’t have kiddos or a need for mittens, I thought these would make a great gift for my niece and nephew! They are both under 3 years old and just moved up north to Michigan. I can just imagine how much fun they’ll have playing in the snow this winter! I created these monogrammed mittens with the new Cricut EasyPress Mini in about 15 minutes – it doesn’t get much better than that!
- Iron On Vinyl
- Select your monogram in Cricut Design Space and size it to fit on your mittens. (Here's my file)
- Press "Make It"
- Set to the correct material: "Iron On"
- Mirror your design.
- Cut your design - you'll need 1 for each mitten!
- Weed the design (remove the excess vinyl)
- Place iron-on material face down, liner side up.
- Heat the Cricut EasyPress Mini according to this heat guide.
- Press while moving with light pressure at medium setting for 25 seconds.
- Flip over and press for 15 seconds.
- Remove while still warm.
The Cricut EasyPress Mini was perfect for this project because it is designed to be used on small projects and in tight spaces. You could also use on items like hats, shoes, or shirt sleeves and pockets.
Be sure you wait at least 24 hours after applying iron on before washing. Always turn inside out and NEVER use bleach!
