Decide what measurement you prefer to your iron-on to be and regulate the font and/or picture measurement as wanted.

Group and Connect Every Design

In the event you’re creating your personal design, make sure to group and connect the font/photographs that you just need to keep collectively. In any other case, the Cricut machine will separate the designs for the most effective chopping possibility when it types the pictures onto the mat. Click on “Make It” while you’re prepared to maneuver on to chopping.

Reduce the design.

Earlier than chopping, examine the picture structure on the preview mat to make sure that all the pieces is the best way you prefer to. A very powerful factor to recollect when chopping iron-on is to click on the button to reflect the pictures. Don’t overlook this step!!!

Upon getting your vinyl utilized to the yoga mat, use your hair dryer over the vinyl to assist “soften” the vinyl into the mat just a little extra and make it extra sturdy.

The second possibility is to make use of a daily iron as an alternative of the EasyPress; nevertheless, this could be a little bit of of venture. Not like the Cricut EasyPress, a common iron has variable warmth {the entrance of the iron has totally different warmth than the again}, you don’t know the precise temperature, and the floor space is smaller and irregular. This may end up in extra problem getting your iron-on to really switch and stick or, even worse, injury to the fabric. In the event you do need to do that methodology, make sure to use a decrease temperature setting to keep away from melting the mat and maintain the iron shifting round to keep away from burning the mat.
