Cutting fabric with Cricut

First step: put your fabric onto heat n' bond or something similar. Follow directions to iron it on. (paper side should be face down)
Step 2: Place ironed-on fabric onto Cricut mat (paper side against mat and fabric right side up facing you).
Step 3: Set your Speed to maximum and Pressure to maximum. Cut.
Peel off and voila!

Now go iron it on a shirt or bag or whatever to dress it up!
I stitched around the edges of hat, band and buckle to make more durable, and added a cute button spider.
Inspired by THIS picture.
Goes great with the pumpkin flower I made her!
Oh yea, she's ready for Halloween with style. :)
If you want to use my hat, you are more than welcome to download it HERE and make one of your own shirts...or whatever! :) Included is SVG files of the hat, band, buckle and the SCUT file for Sure Cuts A Lot. You don't have to have a cricut to use the pattern; print it out and use it as a stencil! Have fun! :)
