How to Make Word Socks with Cricut
I Don’t Wanna Fuzzy Socks
The cut file for this project is completely ready to go! Simply click here and you will be taken to Cricut Design Space. I have the file sized to fit a Woman’s Sock. If this size works for you then you can click on Make It. If you need to adjust the sizing, click on customize.
I am making a couple pairs as a gift so the below image is of me cutting 4 project copies.
Place the iron-on shiny side down on the light-grip mat, and make sure you click on Mirror Image before you begin the cut. Follow the prompts in Cricut Design Space to cut the image out.
I cut this out on a Cricut Maker but all Cricut machines cut iron-on vinyl so it will work with any machine.
Once the image is cut, weed the excess iron-on vinyl from the backing sheet. The BrightPad is super helpful during this step because it shines light through the lines so you can easily see the areas you need to weed. Don’t forget to remove the center of the letters!
To help the sock stretch out a bit while applying the iron on, I made a cardboard pattern of my foot. Simply trace your foot on a piece of scratch cardboard and cut out. You can cut two to be able to iron-on both socks at once or simply do one at a time.
Slide the cardboard piece into the sock and flatten the heel of the sock.
To know exactly what temperature and time to set your EasyPress 2 at you can visit the online Cricut EasyPress Interactive Quick Reference Guide. You enter the type of iron-on you are using and the type of material, and the guide gives you all the information you need even if you should peel the backing while the material is still warm or if you should let it cool!
You can really place the words in any direction you like, just make sure it is the same for both socks.
For my iron-on and fuzzy sock material, I set the Cricut Easy Press to a temperature of 315 and 30 seconds.
Slowly peel back the iron-on backing off of the socks. With the plushness of the fuzzy socks, it may be tricky to get the peel started. It doesn’t act like it wants to come off. But it will and after it gets started the rest peels really nicely.
If the iron-on doesn’t stick you can reapply the backing and apply the heat cycle again.
Now I can say how I really feel without actually saying it all!
Looking at this picture now, I think the socks are on backward. But hey, you get the point! LOL!
