sun & sand utility tote

Use your Cricut® to make this cute utility tote to carry all your beach-fun must haves when going to the beach this summer!
Step 1

First, click here for the design in Cricut® Design Space™.

Step 2

Size the design, if needed, as you would like it to appear on your tote.
TIP: Delete, or hide, the translated design you do not wish to cut.

Step 3

Click ‘Make It’ in the upper right corner of your screen.

Step 4

In your preview screen, check ‘Mirror’ in the left panel for each mat, to reverse your image.

Step 5

Now, click ‘Continue’ in the bottom right corner of your screen and choose the correct material.

Step 6

Place the iron-on material, shiny-side down, onto your cutting mat. Load the mat into your Cricut® machine, then press the blinking Cricut® icon to start cutting.

Step 7

Once your machine is done cutting each layer, use scissors to cut your design from the iron-on material roll. Next, use your weeder tool to remove all the excess material around and inside your design. You’ll be left with just the reversed design on the clear plastic carrier sheets, which are slightly sticky.

Step 8

Preheat your EasyPress™ to the appropriate temperature for your material and, if needed, adjust the timer.
TIP: See the Quick Reference Guide, included with your EasyPress™, for temperature and times or click here an interactive guide. You can also use an iron to press your material. Just follow the instructions included in the iron-on material packaging.

Step 9

Place your EasyPress™ mat on your ironing board and then place section of the tote you want to add your design on the mat. Preheat the fabric for 5 seconds.

Step 10

Place the carrier sheet with your design’s bottom layer, so it’s sticky-side down, onto your tote. You should be able to see the layer through the carrier sheet, just as it will appear once ironed.
TIP: Press each layer, one at a time, starting with the bottom layer.

Step 11

Place your EasyPress™ on top of the design, apply the appropriate pressure for your material and press the time button. Slowly peel off the carrier sheet.

Step 12
Once you have all layers attached, heat for an additional 15 second from the inside.
