What is a Cricut?

Post contains affiliate links - if you make a purchase I get a small percentage and your cost stays the same. So, thanks!!

Cricut - noun, (pronounced just like the bug, "Cricket"), and pretty much the greatest crafting tool you could ever have. 

I've written about Cricut machines for years - I even owned one of the original small ones all the way back in 2006. As much as I talk about it, there are still people who don't know what it is (or how to say it!) But don't worry, when I first read about it I thought it was "cry-CUT" too :)

Tips for Using Stretch Heat Transfer Vinyl

Siser North America sent me some HTV to review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Some links in this post are affiliate.

Stretch Heat Transfer Vinyl is an iron-on vinyl that has, well, a bit of stretch to it! This makes it ideal for applying to all kinds of fabric. It works great on stretchy materials like Lycra®/spandex or cotton, and it's also fabulous for cotton poly blends, polyester and even leather! It has an ultra matte finish that is really pretty. I used it to dress up a baby onesie and it came out so cute because it layers perfectly.
