Why Cricut Joy?
Let’s start with the obvious: Cricut joy™ is the cheapest, most compact, and super easiest Cricut cutting machines to use . With this little buddy, you can cut cardstock, paper, leather, plastic, and heat transfer vinyl (HTV), among other materials. For a complete list, you may visit their Cricut website.
There are a plethora (Uff, I love that word!) of videos on youtube with excellent tutorials explaining step-by-step how to become a champ at using the Cricut Joy™. I learned about this company and its incredible machines thanks to the social media platform.
I mentioned in another post that my first investment in cutting vinyl, around 2011, was a Graphtec Craft Robo Pro for which I paid over $1,600. I still have it. I still love it. I still use it. But when it comes to DIY projects for at-home creators involving underwear, a Cricut Joy™ is a must-have. The area of most undergarments to decorate is pretty small, and the best part is that you will most likely be able to use your HTV scraps to create fun designs.
For beginners, you can get a heat transfer vinyl bundle with several colors in Amazon or any other source you prefer. Clicking on the picture here you’ll be able to explore the very same products I buy and use. The quality is great and very easy to weed. If you give it a try, leave a comment below and tell me if you like it.
Don’t forget to grab a Cricut basic tool set. “This 5-piece set lets you lift, snip, burnish & weed.” If you live nearby a Michaels store, you can go and take a look at it before you buy it. There are other brands as well. The prices are pretty similar. You will need these tools to get your job done. Buy the ones that fit your budget, but don’t neglect quality.
Embellishing underwear is super fun. They make fun gifts for birthdays, anniversaries, all holidays, just because, etc. Take a look at Thinking Panties’ Instagram account to get some inspiration. If you need blanks for your projects, we offer our own brand of the utmost quality. They come in packs of assorted colors to begin experimenting with your creative ideas.
