If you’ve been wondering how to use the Cricut washable fabric pen, I thought I’d share a few photos and tips! I wrote a full Cricut Maker review and wanted to include these thoughts about the fabric pen, but thought it deserved its own post since this pen can be used in the Explore Air 2 as well.
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.
Last year, I got the chance to try out the Explore Air 2 from Cricut (I made this upcycled memory game) and this year I’m trying out their newest machine. I’m sharing this Cricut Maker review to give you an idea of what this machine can do that others can’t, things I did and didn’t like, as well as some ideas for potential projects! I tend to focus on fabric, felt, and embroidery crafts so that’s the frame of reference that I’m coming from. Since I received it in exchange for two blog posts, I’m obviously not going to be completely unbiased, but I do always try to share a balanced viewpoint in anything I review.
I have been bursting at the seams (pun intended) to share my newest pattern, the mini pocket critters! My pocket kitty has been so popular with readers, my kids, and Pinterest and the idea was sparked to shrink it down as an Easter egg filler. I had so much fun sewing the mini kitty, I designed a whole crew of animal friends. My kids love playing with these little animals, and they use up the tiniest of felt scraps.
Looking for a creative outlet to channel your feminist pride? Feminist cross stitch patterns and feminist embroidery patterns have been popular in the past few years and I rounded up some of my favorites. Traditionally a demure and “lady-like” craft, needlework has become more popular with modern stitchers looking to express different values. The patterns I picked range from inspiring people to warning them; it is hard to choose a favorite!
