My favorite crafting projects ALWAYS involve Iron-on vinyl! No joke, I love it. It's the quickest way to throw something custom together. Cricut has released another way to make iron-on quick, efficient and now, mini! Using even the smallest of the Cricut EasyPress family was big when it came to small things like hats, doll clothes, coozies, sleeves, cuffs, stuffed animals and other small/delicate things. Now the EasyPress family has a new member, the Mini , and it does all the small things. The EasyPress mini has 3 settings, essentially low, medium and high.

I was wasting so much iron-on and

Island in the Sun Reflective Iron-On Vinyl Running Shirt DIY

 Island in the Sun Reflective Iron-On Vinyl Running Shirt DIY I love the song "Island in the Sun" by Weezer. I remember the street I was driving down in Salt Lake City in 2002 when I first heard the song on the radio. Isn't it funny how music can transport you through time and space like that? It's been a favorite for years, so why not the theme of my running shirt. This running shirt is made with reflective iron-on vinyl, so it reflects headlights when I run in the dark mornings.   Yes, I started running the first part of August. I've been walking with a friend or two for nearly 2 years, then we decided we needed to kick it up a notch and start interval running. It's been great and I feel like I am getting stronger and more endurant! Reflective shirts or vests are super important when running in the dark...like me at 5: 30 AM. Let's make one now!  Supplies Needed: Athletic Shirt Reflective Iron-On Vinyl Cricut Maker Cricut EasyPre
