Supplies Needed for the Time to Unwind Yarn Lovers Canvas Bag:
- Cricut Machine – A Cricut Explore Air machine or a Cricut Maker will work for this project.
- Cricut Iron-On Vinyl – any color, but black is my favorite for single color projects
- Cricut StandardGrip Cutting Mat
- Weeding tool
- Cricut EasyPress
- Cricut EasyPress Mat
- Cotton canvas bag
- Measuring tape
- Time to Unwind SVG cut file
Where to Locate the Time to Unwind SVG Cut File
Like with many of my other projects, this SVG cut file is from Design Bundles. Design Bundles is a great place to find easy-to-use cut files for use with the Cricut machine. Click here to get the cut file for this project.
Download the cut file onto your computer, and then upload it into Cricut Design Space. If this is your first time uploading files into Cricut Design Space, see this article on How to Upload SVG files to Cricut Design Space.
Completing the Project
Measure the area on the canvas bag where you would like the image to go. Resize the image in the Design Space canvas to fit on this area on the canvas bag.
Send the image to the Cricut machine, placing the iron-on vinyl on the StandardGrip cutting mat. Be sure to mirror the image when cutting and match the color vinyl with the cut.
Once the image is cut, use the weeding tool to remove any vinyl that is not needed in the design.
If you need a refresher on working with iron-on vinyl, see this article on How to Get Iron-on Vinyl Right the First Time.
My favorite helpful resource when doing iron-on vinyl projects is the Cricut Interactive Heat Guide. This guide allows me to choose my type of iron-on material and my base material and then spits out a magic formula for me to utilize when adhering the iron-on vinyl to the canvas bag. Follow the instructions on the Cricut Interactive Heat Guide to place the design on the canvas bag. It will also direct whether the peel is warm or cold when removing the liner.
