With so much down time at home these days I have been getting crafty with my Cricut. My most recent project is a bag specifically for books that we need to return to the library. I keep the bag on a hook in our laundry room and the kids know when they are done reading a book they are supposed to place it in the bag. We haven’t quite yet got down the “put it in the bag” part of the plan, but we are working on it.
I love the idea of having one central place where we can store our library books and then when it’d time to return them we just grab the bag and go.
My husband went to a trade show and got this plain white tote bag as part of his swag. I knew I could dress it up with my Cricut machine to make it a prettier. I used a floral printed iron and and cut out the words “RETURN THESE BOOKS.” with an all capital block font.
Next I use my Cricut Easy Press to iron the image onto the bag. The whole process took less than 30 minutes and I am super happy with the results.
Using my Cricut Maker to make iron-ons for bags and clothing is probably one of the things I use my Cricut for the most, it’s so much fun to personalize your own items. Cricut currently has a sale on some of their popular machines if you are interested in taking the plunge and getting a Cricut machine for yourself. I seriously love mine! The Cricut Explore Air 2 is only $179 for the machine, they also have some bundle options that will also save you money on some supplies too. Here are the different options for the machines, I have previously owned the Cricut Explore Air, but upgraded to the Cricut Maker last year.
Here are a few other Cricut projects I have created:
