Cactus Faux Leather Tote Bag with Cricut!

Cactus plants in polka dot pattern on faux leather tote bag made with Cricut Maker, Iron on vinyl and EasyPress!
Cactus Faux Leather Tote Bag with Cricut!
Isn't this cactus tote bag the best?!  It's easy to make with one simple image cut multiple times.  Best part is that Iron-on Vinyl adheres perfectly to faux leather, and it couldn't be more easy!
You will need:
Cricut Maker or cutting machine
Green Foil Iron on Vinyl
EasyPress 2 small
Cricut Iron on Protective sheet

Place the iron on vinyl colored side down on the mat and set it to cut.
Cut 14 cute little cactus, weed out the excess vinyl.
I love the shiny foil iron on!  Then cut all the cacti apart.
Then place the EasyPress mat inside the faux leather tote.

Line up the cactus so you know the spacing you want for the finished product.  Then place the first one or three.
Then cover with the protective sheet.
Set the EasyPress 2 to the proper setting for faux leather.  I set it slightly cooler at 295 and pressed for 5 seconds at a time to prevent the tote from melting.  Then pressed again for another 5 seconds.
Press firmly with the EasyPress.
Repeat for each cluster of cacti.

Let the vinyl cool down completely, then peel off the carrier plastic sheet.
Easy to peel off once it's cooled down.  If it doesn't look like it's adhered, re-press as necessary.
Now the bag is ready to fill with all sorts of goodies and take it out on the town.  Makes a great handmade gift too!
