DIY Crochet Humor Mug

I purchased my Cricut for my birthday 6 months ago and I'm not just making a mug. I've been busy picking up new hobbies like Knitting

I've had this Dollar Tree mug for some time now. I was going to use a sharpie to decorate it but decided it would be perfect for my first (non HTV) vinyl project).

I found the "Hooker" file online and cleaned it up in Photoshop. I used my iPhone to pull it up on the Design Space app and print! LOVE the wifi feature on the Explore Air. Now I wish I didn't return the iPad I bought myself last year. It would be easier to work in than my iPhone 6 Plus. I guess it could be worse. It could be an iPhone 4 haha!

Materials used:

Cricut Explore Air 
Paper Cutter
Contact paper (from Dollar Tree)
Cutting mat and tools
and I used my iPhone's Design Space app (there's no laptop in my craft room)

I saved the project from my desktop and pulled it up on my phone. After I measured the vinyl, I placed it on the mat (film side down) and cut the picture of the yarn and the "hooker" word.

After weeding, I transferred it to the contact paper

Carefully, attach to the mug. Use the flat piece that came with machine to smooth out.

"Yarn" Canvas Tote Bag

This is one of the 3 things I "Yarn" on. I put the exact same "Yarn" font on a mug and tank top.

I JUST Love it!

I used the cricut explore air and iron on vinyl. LOVE LOVE LOVE! I mean, who doesn't love Yarn? HAHA

I also made matching

"Yarn" Tank Top

I purchased tons of tanks when I made my girlfriend's Personalized Bridal Tanks. I decided not to return it since I may use it for other projects.

I put the same font "Yarn" vinyl on a mug and canvas tote. I need one on a tank too!

"Yarn" Mug

I've been on a hunt for a nice mug to put vinyl on. And I found this at our local Walmart. It was alone on a shelf where it didn't belong. I took it to the price scanner and it was $1.25. What?! $1.25? I wish there were more!

Check out the Tank Top and Canvas Tote Bag I made using the same "Yarn" font!

For a tutorial, check out the DIY Crochet Humor Mug that says "Hooker" on it. 

Who isn't obsessed with Yarn?!
