DIY RAINBOW SOCKS | CRICUT

Create the cutest pair of positive socks using sportflex iron-on.


I'm a hoarder of cute socks, I just can't get enough of them! So I had to create my own pair of sock to bring positive vibes with me where ever I go!


I used sportflex iron-on for these so that the design stretches with the sock.

YOU WILL NEED:


-Cricut Maker, Explore or Joy

-Cricut Easy Press or Easy Press Mini

-Cricut Easy Press Mat

-Cricut Sportflex

-Cricut Weeding Tool

-Plain Pair of Socks


STEP ONE:


First, search for a rainbow image in Cricut Design Space and add it into the canvas. Then add the text, and attach it beneath your rainbow image. Resize the image to fit your sock size. Duplicate so that you have two, one for each sock!


STEP TWO:


Next head to make it, load the sport lex iron-on sheet, shiny side down, onto the mat. Then start cutting. Make sure to choose sport flex as your material setting.


Repeat this process to cut each different colour of vinyl.


STEP THREE:


Once cut, remove the mat from the machine, then take the iron-on sheet off of the mat.

Use a weeding tool to remove all of the excess vinyl just leaving the rainbow design attached to the clear carrier sheet.



STEP FOUR:


Then press each layer using the Easy Press. Check the Cricut heat guide to get the correct heat setting and time for the fabric of your socks.


Press the bottom layer first then repeat the process for each layer, covering the previous layers with a sheet of baking paper to protect them.


STEP FIVE:


Allow your design to cool completely before peeling off the final carrier sheet to reveal your finished design. Pop the socks onto your feet and spread those positive vibes!
