Check out My Iron-On Vinyl Book Bag!
I got the black canvas bag at Hobby Lobby (these are often 50% off ), however at $2.99, it's a bargain no matter what. See below:
And then I thought this was a funny saying, based off a popular rap song by Sir Mix A Lot ("Baby Got Back"). Not that I'm a big rap listener at all, but this song has been played all over so it's hard to miss.
Creative Memories Traveler Cartridge - I just love this font! File will be available below.
I got my iron-on vinyl from Expressions Vinyl - they have a bunch of colors and various sizes for the Cricut (6" x 12", 12" x 12", 12" x 24", 12" x 5 yds, 12" x 10 yds) . They have iron-on vinyl (looks matter - which I've used and like) and flocked vinyl (love the dimension on this kind). It is $6.49 for 12" x 24" and there are frequent coupons. Be sure and sign up for their email newsletter.
I cut this all out using the following setting of blade at 4, pressure and speed at 3. I was asked in the comments the other day why I had to flip the wording. When you cut this out, the plastic backing goes against the mat, so that the vinyl is facing upward. Then, when you go to iron, the plastic backing is facing up and is what you iron on. So, you have to flip whatever you are working on.
Finally, I thought I would add a funny photo of my cat, who laid her big self on my bag before I started the project. I had to force her off it to start the ironing.
