Hello, my name is Kristin, and I’m addicted to my Cricut. Now, I want to be 100% honest…I am not a DIY person. Six months ago, the thought of creating anything sent my anxiety into a tailspin. But now that I have been introduced to the world of the Cricut, I have the confidence to take on (almost) any DIY project! That is why I am over-the-moon excited to share our “There Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” DIY blanket created by yours truly (proud mom moment).
Not only does this blanket fall into the ever-so popular woodland theme that we constantly see popping up in our gallery, it’s also pretty adorable if I do say so myself. If you aren’t a black-and-white fan, you can customize the color scheme to fit your nursery design and your own personal style. Ready to get started? With a few easy steps, you’ll be a able to create a blanket you’ll be proud off.
Materials: Plain blanket (I used the POLARVIDE from Ikea so the design is currently set for a 51×67 blanket), Cricut Explore Air2, Standard Cricut Cutting mat, iron-on material (I used black) and an iron.
Follow the link to our “There Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” file in Cricut’s Design Space. Be sure to format the size of the design to fit the dimensions of your blanket.
Once you have your design formatted click “Go.” Be sure to check the mirror image box for iron-on.
Load your iron-on face down onto a regular or light grip mat.
Set your dial to custom for the iron-on setting on the Cricut.
The Cricut works like a printer, but instead of printing, it’s cutting out your shapes with a built-in blade. I always find the cutting process mesmerizing.
Carefully remove all the excess iron-on material using your Cricut weeding tool to reveal your design!
Next, lay the iron-on shapes onto the blanket, lining side up. Be sure to lay them out exactly how you want the final design to look.
Follow the iron-on instructions that are found on the roll of material. Place a light towel or pressing cloth between the iron and the iron-on when ironing. Once cooled, remove the plastic lining from the iron-ons.
And there you have it—a blanket made with love! Are you ready to make your own?
If you take on this project or create your own blanket design, we want to see it! Happy crafting!
