Personalized Library Bag {tutorial}

This is not a sponsored post, but affiliate links are used. Thank you!

Good morning!  A few months ago I told you all about the new EasyPress 2 from Cricut . Annnnnd I’ve been busy making all the things! :) Using Cricut Iron-on is so much fun! Let me show you how I made this Personalized Library Bag with the EasyPress 2.

    
Here’s a little recap about the EasyPress 2! :) Annnnd a reminder that you use the EasyPress 2 with any kind of machine, Cricut or Silhouette and with just about any type of heat transfer vinyl.  Annnnd every single time you will get professional iron-on results in 60 seconds or less! Before I had an EasyPress I really struggled with getting my iron on to stick! It was frustrating to say the least! ha! I am so happy that the Cricut EasyPress 2 delivers fast and foolproof results that really stick, wash after wash after wash.
Annnnd now the EasyPress 2 comes in 3 sizes. So fun! From the small petite machine to the large machine for those big projects, you are sure to find the perfect one for your iron-on needs! For reference, the original Cricut EasyPress only came in the 9” x 9” size. The EasyPress 2 comes in that size as well, and it also comes in a smaller & larger size. All three sizes have an advanced heat plate design. The heating surface is ceramic-coated and two unique heating elements to create edge-to-edge heat for flawless heat transfer. You can check them all out at this link. You can see some of my iron-on projects here. Annnnd don’t forget to grab a coordinating EasyPress2 Mat! :)

Alright, let’s get to that tutorial. :)

For this project you will need:
this cut file
large canvas bag (I found this one at Walmart.)
glitter iron-on (red)
EasyPress2 (large)

Cricut has a super easy to follow EasyPress guide on their site. Simply enter in the base material & the type of iron on & it will tell you exactly what to do and what temperature to set your EasyPress, too. So first, I preheated my bag.


Center my design on the bag.


Applied pressure for 30 seconds at 330 degrees.


Annnnd then I peeled off the backing while it was still warm.


All done! :)
