This Cricut Cosmetic Bag takes about an hour from cut to sewn!
You can make this Cricut Cosmetic Bag with the new Cricut Maker!
The Cricut Maker makes sewing fun again! I love to sew. But I HATE to cut the pattern. Without fail, I rip the tissue paper pattern. And you can never get that pattern to fit back in the packet again. With the Maker, all I have to do is cut to the size of the mat, load it in the machine and let the machine take it from there.
The Cricut Maker comes with 50 FREE digital sewing patterns. This pattern is NOT included in the free ones. The cosmetic bag is just one of hundreds of Simplicity® patterns uploaded into Design Space. Riley Blake® has also uploaded several quilting patterns!! Search for sewing patterns in projects, not images. Patterns that come from the partners include a printable PDF file for easy assembly!
The fabric marker is amazing!
One of the awesome features of the new device, is the washable fabric pen. If you are new to sewing, the pen will mark and number your pieces. Make sure you put your fabric down on the mat, printed side down. For all patterns with markings, Cricut has mirrored the pieces you will see on the cutting mat.
It labels the folds and the sewing lines which makes assembly a breeze! The patterns that have the fabric marker lines can be turned off for those of you who are more experienced. I’m working on a Design Space video series so more on that to come!
I’m working on changing my Stitched Sunglasses Case into a Cricut Maker pattern!
What about the rotary blade?
Now let’s talk about the rotary blade. This thing cuts fabric like butter. The rotary blade comes with the Cricut Maker. I made five of these little cosmetic bags in 75 minutes the other night. The rotary blade is only compatible with the Cricut Maker machine. Look at these clean lines!
That special pink mat…
The pink fabric mat is a new addition. This mat is made of special adhesive. If you scrape the fabric fringe from the mat, you will actually press it into the mat. This will ruin the cut. Cricut suggests using the transfer tape to remove any excess or unwanted fabric scraps. You should also take special care NOT to touch it with your hands. The oil in your hands can ruin the adhesive and make the mat less sticky much faster.
Cricut has take special time and care into creating a fun sewing experience for novice to expert sewists! I cannot wait to dig into some more of these projects and create some of my own!
Do you have a Cricut Maker? What do you think about the rotary blade?
