I recently got a Cricut Mug Press and have been testing it out so that I could share a tutorial here with everything you need to know to get started.

This little long legged bear goes along with the bunny that I shared a couple of weeks ago. I mentioned that I would have more animals coming and this is the second one in the series. There will be one more animal, then some accessories to go along with them.

I feel like I have been in a bit of a crochet funk lately. I think with the weather warming up and spring just around the corner I haven't wanted to make any more wintery projects like hats and scarves, even though those are things I typically enjoy making. Not that there aren't plenty of non-winter things you can crochet, it is just a matter of making that shift in my mind.

Do you need permanent vinyl or removable? Regular transfer tape or strong grip, or do you even need transfer tape? Everyday iron on, SportFlex, Infusible Ink? What about materials that you can only use with a specific machine? This post is going to answer all of those questions and more.
