DIY: Baby Hats + Cricut EasyPress Mini

Materials List:

For this project, I am cutting iron-on from some Mini Sampler packs and then applying them to the hats using the EasyPress Mini. It's super simple - check out how I made them below!

Safety Precautions:

Before we start, it's important to observe some safety precautions. Ensure you're working in a well-ventilated area, and handle all heated tools with care to avoid any accidents.

Temperature and Pressure:

Visit Cricut's official website to find the recommended heat settings for everyday iron-on materials. For baby hats made of 100% cotton, the suggested setting is medium heat for 25 seconds.

Application Process:

  1. Preheat your Cricut EasyPress Mini, and preheat the area on the baby hat where you'll apply the iron-on for about 5 seconds.
  2. Carefully position the iron-on material on the hat, ensuring it's straight and centered.
  3. Apply the EasyPress Mini for 25 seconds. Ensure you maintain consistent pressure during this step.
  4. Once the timer is done, flip the hat and heat the back for about 10 to 15 seconds.

Cooling Period:

Let the iron-on material cool for about 5 to 10 seconds before attempting to peel off the carrier sheets. This step is crucial for achieving a secure bond.

What do you think? Pretty nifty, huh? We've got lots more projects coming up using the EasyPress Mini, so stay tuned!

By following these steps and tips, you'll be well on your way to creating super cute baby hats that make perfect baby shower gifts. If you found this guide helpful, don't forget to give it a thumbs up and subscribe to our YouTube channel for more Cricut-related content. Thanks for watching!
