Cricut Infusible Ink will change the way you craft! It is the coolest thing ever and you’ll see why when I share two projects using Cricut Infusible Ink. Cricut Infusible Ink is an alternative way to design t-shirts, tote bags, onesies, and even coasters! The revolutionary Infusible Ink System gives you professional-quality transfers that last a lifetime. The Cricut Maker and the EasyPress 2 are a must-have for both of these projects!

Materials Need:

Preparing your Design:

Cricut Infusible Ink tote

Open Cricut Design Space and search for image #M3B1D3. Because we are using Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets we need to Ungroup the image. Then we need to use the Contour option on the bottom right-hand side. This will allow us to cut out the bandana so that it is sitting flush with the dog’s body. Select the two bandana pieces and click weld. Repeat the same process for the dog’s body and the earpiece. You will be left with two pieces.

Use the Text tool to write “Dog Mom”. Once you find a font you like – you are ready to cut!

Cutting Your Design:

Design Space will arrange your design based on color. I knew the bandana and the “Dog Mom” text would be printed on the same transfer sheet. Place the Infusible Ink Transfer sheet on the StandardGrip mat with the design facing up.

Select the Infusible Ink as the material (just do a search for it). Note: You must mirror your image. Send it to print. Weed your design carefully. Be sure your hands are clean – no oils or water. Repeat process for both Infusible Ink Transfer sheets.

Meanwhile, prepare the tote. Place a piece of cardstock paper on top of the Cricut EasyPress mat and inside the blank tote. Use the lint roller to remove any lint from the bag (as it could affect the transfer).  Start heating up the Cricut Easypress to 385 degrees. Place a piece of Butcher paper on top of the tote – using the EasyPress heat the tote for 15 seconds.

Setup the design by placing the bandana on the cut out of the dog. It should fit like a puzzle. Arrange the design on the tote bag. Once you are happy with the placement – place a piece of butcher paper on top of the design. Use the EasyPress to heat the material for 40 seconds at 385 degrees. Let cool then carefully remove the carrier sheet. Next, admire your work!
