Ugly Christmas Sweater Stocking – DIY

December 6, 2015

Ugly Sweater Stocking*This post does contain affilitate links, all opinions are my own.

I was challenged by Cricut to make an ugly sweater inspired stocking. I can’t express how much I love my Cricut and all that it has to offer. My favorite part of it? The apps that you can do snazzy things with. I can lay in bed and create a file and not have to worry about cutting it until I get my act together. When I was on bed-rest, this saved me from going into a creative rut and saved my sanity from having to be in bed all day. DIY StockingsCricut Iron-On VinylI picked these awesome Rob & Bob Studio shapes and un-grouped them so that I’d be able to multiply and use them as single shapes rather than a card like it was designed for. I grouped the specific shapes into the coordinating colors so I could get all the cuts I needed on the same sheet. When you have this stuff, you don’t want to waste a bit of it so, be sure to mirror your images so that everything will come out the right way!Cricut Explore ChristmasI used silver and black standard Iron-On and gold and white glitter Iron-On. When I used the standard Iron-On, I used the Iron-On setting. When I used the glitter Iron-On, I used the custom setting on my smart dial and selected Iron-On glitter from the drop down menu. You’ll have to do 2 separate cuts – as in cut your regular Iron-On and then start a new cut all together for the glitter Iron-On. You cannot change the cut settings in the middle of the cut if it’s a custom setting.  Christmas Ugly SweaterIf you’d like the FREE Cricut Design Space file, click here.
