Whimsical Iron-on Kitchen Towel Project

untitled (3)

Hello everyone ! It’s Debbie O’Neal of Scrap Me Quick Designs, here to share a quick Iron-On Kitchen Towel Project using a fun SVG image from the May Craft Bundle. This would make a clever gift or just something whimsical for your very own kitchen. 

For today’s tutorial, we will be using the “When In Doubt, Add Bacon” SVG file from Tizzy Labs.

I literally squealed (sorry piggy) when I saw this… we do so love bacon at our house.

 

Whimsical Iron-on Kitchen Towel Project

 

Here’s what you’ll need;

  • 1  When In Doubt, Add Bacon SVG file (The May Craft Bundle) – downloaded and installed for die cut machine usage 
  • 1  Cotton Kitchen Towel – Find on Amazon, Kitchen Stores, Discount Stores
  • 1  Roll of Iron-On/ Heat Transfer Vinyl (Navy or color of your choice)
  • A Weeding Tool
  • An Electronic Die Cut Machine  (I used Cricut Maker with Cricut Design Space but it works with Silhouette or other electronic die cut machines capable of cutting SVG files)
  • 1  Household Iron or Heat Press or Cricut Easy Press (I used the Cricut Easy Press)
  • A firm flat surface and a heat resistant pad or towel folded in half to use when you do the ironing

 

Step 1

Upload the SVG file to your electronic die cut software, here I am using the Cricut Design Space software for Cricut Maker. And then add to your virtual mat as shown below.

Step 1

Step 2

Size your image to fit your kitchen towel. I sized mine at 9“w X 8 “h. In Cricut Design Space, I needed to use the “Attach” feature so that image would remain together for cutting.

Step 2

Step 3

Select the material setting on your die cut machine to cut Iron-On/Heat Transfer Vinyl . In Cricut Design Space, I use Iron-On Vinyl setting. And hit the Make It button.

Step 3

Step 4

Make sure you select MIRROR Image as you need to cut the image in reverse when you use Iron-On/Heat Transfer Vinyl. In Cricut Design Space there is a MIRROR Image toggle switch you need to turn on prior to continuing your cut. You will notice it flips the image to reverse on the virtual mat. IMPORTANT: The shiny side (plastic liner) side goes down on your cutting mat so the image can be cut in reverse.

Step 4

Step 5

After cutting, WEED the Iron-On Vinyl. Note: Weeding means taking away the parts of the image you don’t which to keep. To keep waste to a minimum, I cut out the image from the larger vinyl sheet before I start weeding.

 

Step 6

Place weeded image on towel centered on bottom half. Apply the heat to the towel and iron-on vinyl according to directions for the Iron-On Product you are using and . For the Cricut Easy Press, I used temperature setting of 315 degrees F for 30 seconds on front side and then 15 seconds on the back side of the towel.

Step 7

Peel off the plastic liner and your fun kitchen towel is finished and ready for gift giving or to add a bit of whimsy to your own kitchen. You can even use it and wash it, just best to air dry for longevity.

 

And voila, here is the finished product below;

There are lots of other May Craft Bundle images that would make great Iron-On Projects too. What do you want to make ?

 

Happy Crafting !

10 FREE Graphics Perfect for Cushions

We all have couches at home, and we tend to hoard cushions on them. This is probably because we tend to grow tired of looking at the same cushions, with the same designs and are tempted to buy new ones. Which is why we end up with so many of them.

Here’s how you can renew your cushion without having to buy a new one!

All you need is;

  • 1 blank cushion cover (in any colour)
  • a graphic file of your liking

You can then proceed to transform your cushion with a brand new cushion cover of your own design. There are tons of files to choose from on our website, but we’ve decided to compile a list of 10 free graphics to begin with.
