Making towels with Cricut is a great way to add a personalized touch to your home. Whether it’s a unique pattern, special message, or favorite quote, you can make towels that look amazing and are also practical.
The first step in making towels with Cricut is to gather your supplies. You will need a towel (bath or hand), an iron-on material such as HTV or vinyl, a pair of scissors, an iron and an ironing board.
Next, you will need to create your design in Cricut Design Space. You can use existing images from the library or create your own from scratch.
Once you’ve designed your image, you can upload it to Cricut Design Space and cut out the design using the appropriate material for your project.
Once you have cut out your design, it is time to apply it to the towel. Start by pre-heating the iron and pressing the design onto the towel with the iron on medium heat. Place a thin cloth over the design before pressing down so that no damage is done to either the towel or the image.
When applying HTV:
HTV should be applied at medium heat for 10 seconds without pressure.
When applying iron-on vinyl:
Iron-on vinyl should be applied at low heat for 20 seconds with firm pressure.
After applying either HTV or Iron-on vinyl, peel away any excess material from around the edges of the design and then press again for 10 seconds (with HTV) or 20 seconds (with Iron-on Vinyl).
The last step is to wash and dry your new towel! Be sure not to use any fabric softener when washing as this can damage both HTV and Iron-on Vinyl designs.
Making towels with Cricut is easy and allows you to add a personal touch to any room in your home. With just a few simple steps, you can make beautiful personalized towels that will last for years.
Making towels with Cricut is easy and allows for creative freedom when personalizing items in your home.
