get foxy with Cricut's EasyPress!

Everywhere we go, Matilda asks if she can carry my bag. So, I knew just what I wanted to make for this partnership with Cricut reviewing the new EasyPress - a cute fox bag that Matilda could call her own.

For this project, I used one of my old purses (one that was just the right size for my 5 year old Matilda). I adjusted a few different images in Design Space - if you want to use what I created, just go ahead and click this link. The face is cut out of Cricut faux suede in red and the eyes, nose, and inside of the ears were done in a metallic rose iron-on.  

I have tried the EasyPress on shirts, and it was markedly better than using an iron. I love that the surface is large enough to fit most designs, and the timer is really handy. I have also noticed that the iron-on material seems so hold better than before.

For this review, I wanted to try something a little bit more complicated than a t-shirt. I first added the metallic rose iron-on to the faux suede material - neither of which I had worked with before. I went with the temp of 270 and held for 40 seconds. It worked perfectly!

For the eyes and nose pieces that I put directly onto my leather purse, I made the bag as flat as possible by bending the part I was using outward. Then I used the same setting as before, checked to see if it was ready, and held for 20 more seconds. That did the trick!

Iron-on is one of my favorite materials to use with the Cricut, which makes this product extra appealing to me! Not to mention, I really appreciate the safety features. The EasyPress has a thick base that keeps heat away from other surfaces, or little hands. And, it turns off automatically if it is not being used.
