Supplies You'll Need to Create this Project:
- I Don't Wanna - Cricut Design Space
- Cricut Cutting Machine
- LightGrip Mat
- White Iron-on
- Fuzzy Socks
- Heat Press
- EasyPress Mat
Cut the File in Cricut Design Space:
The cut file for this project is completely ready to go on Cricut Design Space.
We have the file sized to fit a Woman's Sock. If this size works for you then you can select Make It. If you need to adjust the sizing, select Customize.
We are making a couple of pairs as gifts so the image below is cutting for 4 pairs of socks.
Place the iron-on shiny side down onto the light-grip mat, and make sure you select Mirror Image before you begin the cut.
Follow the prompts in Cricut Design Space to cut the image out.
We used 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!
Applying the Design to the Fuzzy Socks:
To help the sock stretch out a bit while applying the iron-on, make a cardboard pattern of your foot. Simply trace your foot onto a piece of scratch cardboard and cut it out.
If you cut two, you can 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, visit the online Cricut EasyPress Interactive Quick Reference Guide.
Enter the type of iron-on you are using and the type of material, and the guide gives you all the information you need. It even tells you if you should peel the backing while the material is still warm or if you should let it cool first.
Place the words onto the socks, just make sure it is the same direction 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 press again.
Now we can say how we 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!
When you make these comfy socks please share a photo! We'd love to see it.
