diy whoa baby hat

I don't care who you are, Full House is the best show ever. And let me tell you, when rerun episodes of Full House replaced The Jay Leno Show while we were living in Australia, Tyler and I both expressed our joy with a celebratory dance.

So when Tyler had the idea to make a hat for Parker with the phrase "Whoa Baby" as a nod to the show's well known phrase, I was totally on board. Here is how you can make your own using the Cricut Explore. Type "Whoa Baby" into the Cricut Design Space and pick a font that fits your style (I used "Bandwidth"). Load your Cricut Iron-on Lite onto a mat, set the dial to vinyl, mirror the words, and press "Go".

Once you are ready to iron on to a plain trucker hat (I ordered mine from Amazon for about three bucks), heat the iron to a high setting (turn off the steam), place the image, and go for it by following the these instructions. I also cut a piece of iron on material to create a pop of color underneath the brim of the hat.

This project was submitted as an entry into the Cricut Design Star challenge. Cricut has asked a number of bloggers to enter projects with specific themes as a fun way to test out the Cricut Explore. I chose to participate in this group because I honestly believe the Cricut Explore is a game changer in the world of crafting and, really, who doesn't love a little competition on the side.
