*This post is in collaboration with Cricut. I am honored to be working with a company that I truly love!
I recently shared with you my review of the new Cricut Maker machine. If you missed that and are interested in reading what I had to say about it, you can find that here. Today I am excited to share with you a fun sewing project that I recently made with my Cricut Maker.
In Cricut’s Design Space, they have provided 50 FREE Sewing Projects that you can create with their amazing new cutting machine. This machine cuts fabric like butter! Seriously! Lots of different kinds of fabric. Today I am joining 49 of my other friends and we are ALL sharing one of the 50 projects that you can make! How fun is that?
I am sharing this adorable Tooth Fairy Monster. My daughter was so excited about this! I am also sharing an exciting giveaway where one of you can win your OWN Cricut Maker! So make sure to keep scrolling so that you can enter this at the bottom of this post!
Cricut Iron-On material in 4 different colors
Felt in 3 different colors
Cricut Fabric Pen
sewing machine (optional)
easy press or iron fiber polyfill stuffing
Follow the directions in the Cricut Design space after pulling up the project here.
I changed the color of my iron-on to match the fabric I used for my Tooth Fairy Monster. You can change it up or follow it exactly, just remember to pay attention to the colors and what you want the colors used for on YOUR project.
Remember to set the material you are cutting each time so that you are using the proper blade. You will also need to check to see if you turn the mirror on for cutting iron-on material.
Also check to load the iron-on material with the shiny side down on the mat. The last thing you will need to remember is to use the proper blade when cutting your materials.
After your materials are all cut out on the Cricut Maker, Iron on the pieces onto the front of one of the pieces of the Monster’s body.
Sew the felt tooth pocket on the front of the Tooth Fairy Monster.
Place the horns onto the material so that they are laying down on the material on top of the face and upside down. Place the other body piece on top of the horns so that it all lines up and the horns are INSIDE the body with the right sides of the material facing each other.
Sew around the monster using the line from the cricut pen as your guide. Leave a small opening under one of the arms so that you can turn the material inside out.
Stuff the body with fiber poly fill. Using a whipstitch, stitch closed the opening on the body.
