Cricut Easy Press 2-Use Something New Cricut Challenge
It's time for another challenge at Bitten By the Bug 2: Use Something New. I used my new Easy Press 2 that my husband purchased for me for Xmas. It was one of the best gifts he has ever given me! Of course, I was working with an iron prior. This machine is so excellent, making my projects with perfection now!
I purchased a couple of athletic tees for my son months ago when Joann's had a great sale. His favorite teams are FCC and the Cincinnati Reds. So I purchased those team colors and the appropriate iron on vinyl colors for his teams. I tried to make something for him months ago but he was disinterested in picking out images. Well just a few weeks ago both teams signed new players. Remarkably both Japanese players. So we completed these projects together. For the first one, we picked an image of the player and I showed him how to convert it to an svg. We researched and downloaded some sports fonts from dafont.com that he liked and added the name where he wanted it.
It's difficult to get pics of tees, so there are a few images.
For the second tee, he downloaded the Cricut app and found an image and created this one himself. We found another sports font on dafont.com for this tee. I downloaded the fonts on my computer and we finished the project. I also showed him how to weed the vinyl and he weeded this one.
Here's another view. I was very pleased with our mother son project. It was nice to spend quality time with him since he is away at college.
Don't forget to try something new and join us at Bitten By the Bug 2: Use Something New. It can be new product or a new technique. Thanks for stopping by!
