  65. Robyn,
    I went JoAnns.com and I couldn't find the Wonder Under online. Is there something else like it I can get? Thanks for your time!

    Christie

    ReplyDelete
  66. Robyn, I don't know if anyone else has suggested this (I don't want to take the time to read all the comments). It is better to cut your wonder under slightly smaller than your fabric. When you go to iron, the fabric will cover all the wonder under and you will not get the glue on the bottom of your iron.
    Also, to separate the backing from the fabric, on the wrong side, run a straight pin over the wonder under backing paper to make a slit. Bend the fabric and the paper should pull away giving you a piece to grab hold of to continue pulling it off.
    This is what I do, I hope it helps.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Thanks for the video - I was wondering how to do that. You girls had way to much fun in the stores. Robyn, I loved it when you kicked your shoes off opposite directions

    wadodd1@sbcglobal.net

    ReplyDelete
  68. Hey if you use "Stiffy" by Plaid you can cut really intricate stuff if you wanted too - but you can't iron that onto your material - BUT you could also cut it with the wonder-under face up and fabric face down on your mat and that can also help you make easier cuts :) Fun fun :) Great video and you and Karlee are so cute :)

    ReplyDelete
  69. Great video Robyn, keep them coming. If you put the fabric down to the mat with the paper side up that works really well too. I love doing it like that. Hope this helps. Thanks for being such an inspirition.

    ReplyDelete
  70. You guys are too funny. You need to sign a contract for a reality show. I know I would tune in. LOL. Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  71. You two are a hoot! Cute video. Thanks for the instruction. I'm still a little nervous about the whole thing, but I'll give it a try. Cute idea with the onesie. I bet it'll be darling with the button added to it.

    Just a tip from a quilter.... always cut your Wonder Under smaller than your fabric. If the sticky stuff gets on your iron it's the devil to get off and transfers to your nice clean white shirts... usually your husband's favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Thanks for sharing this Robyn!! I always wanted to try and i would have done it with the wonder under on the top side = not against the sticky matt!! Now i know better.
    TFS your talents. BTW love the outtakes - will miss Karlee

    ReplyDelete
  80. You two are nuts......having so much fun with friends is what life is about.....I hate to see Karlee leave you and I know you do too.....
    thanks for showing how wonder under works with the cricut....

  81. you 2 crack me up, it is a great way to start my day, laughing.....
    thanks for the video

    ReplyDelete
  82. awesome!! I already have some ideas using this technique! THanks guys!

    ReplyDelete
  83. Ladies, this is the dorkiest video you both have made. Keep laughing and enjoying life. Thanks for being so positive. The best part was the shoes flying off.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Great video! Just a couple of suggestions: Use either a press cloth (purchased) or just a regular sheet of paper to cover your fabric and Heat N'Bond when pressing to prevent getting glue on your iron. Also, when you press move the iron up and down (On and off of the fabric) rather than pushing the iron back and forth. The back and forth method could cause the fabric to shift.Love all of the videos. Thank you.

  90. Thank you for the video. Another fun thing I can do with my Cricut. What was the name of the spray you use to make your mat sticky?

    ReplyDelete
  91. Thanks for the video and loved the outtakes!! I have done this and used Heat and Bond instead of Wonder Under. It works well too. I cut out letters for sashes for a baby shower - Future Grandma, Cousin to be, etc. They were quite a hit. Keep those videos coming. Diane

  92. Awesome job girls! You 2 sure do stir up the creative juices! And the smiles! You must go shopping either late night or very early morning - no other customers in the stores...next time go where the place is packed and video tape some of the customer's facial expressions as you are being silly!

  100. Okay...here is my thought for you and Karlee. A friend is someone you can be a total dork with in private and you know they will love you anyway. A BEST FRIEND is someone you can be a dork with in front of the entire MPS community and the the friendship grows sweeter in the process. I so enjoy you silly girls. Thanks for sharing.

  101. I too have been meaning to try this. I loved the "good times", especially when you went on the cart & kicked your shoes off. I laughed outloud. Will have to show my hubby, he'll appreciate. :)

    This is great, but have you ever cut felt? That is what I'd like to learn how to do.

  105. Great idea! Thanks for the laughs! Gail gailheinecke@charter.net

  106. that is just great i did get to cut material once and it work but i tried to stitch around the image with my sewing machine and the glue from the paper jammed up my needle. i was trying to do some type of patch work. the cartridge is beautiful now i want it "Forever Young". maybe you will give it out too

    ReplyDelete
  107. I've always wanted to know how to do the fabric with the Cricut and now I do - thanks to Robyn!!!!!!!! Thanks so much for the video and the funnies at the end are SO cute!!! It's nice to have a friend you can be yourself with :)

  108. Thanks for providing a lesson on how to cut fabric the easy way.

    ReplyDelete
  109. WATCH OUT FOR FLYING S*H*O*E*S!!!!!

    You two totally crack me up.

    Just a little Wonder Under tip for you- when you cut your Wonder Under, make it just a little bit smaller than your fabric & then you won't get all the glue on your iron. When you iron the Won. Und., lift your iron up and down rather than "ironing" with it.

    You may be able to get the glue off your iron with the iron cleaner that you get at Wal Mart---at my W. Mart it's shelved with the starch. It comes in little(1.5 inch) white tubes & works really well. Don't iron any good clothes until you get the glue off--voice of experience. (I'm out right now or I could give you the brand name.)

    Thank you (and Karlee) so much for this wonderful blog and for this great post!!!

  119. Thank you so much for all of your videos. Fabric cutting was one of the reasons I wanted the Cricut in the first place! I love the idea of the onesie, however, as cute as the button is, I worry about putting buttons on baby items because of the risk of choking should it come off. Please keep your videos coming. I'd be lost without you!

    One thing I would like to add is always use a new blade when cutting fabric. paper dulls blades very quickly

    ReplyDelete
  124. Thanks for the directions. I just tried it and it's not as easy as you make it look. My fabric kept catching and pulling. Maybe I need to put in a new blade like the previous comment suggests. Any other tips?

    ReplyDelete
  125. I have some of my projects that I recently did with fabric and the cricut. One I cut the fabric directly with the cricut as robyn did and the other project the fabric i used was too furry so i used a stencil cut from the cricut. Check it out on my blog www.geminipapercrafts.blogspot.com ~Heather~

    ReplyDelete
  126. Very fun! Tip: When you are ironing you need to cut your wonder under or heat n bond, which I prefer, smaller than your fabric. (This will keeps your iron clean)or cover your fabric with another piece of fabric when you are ironing--this will also protect your iron. =)

    ReplyDelete
  127. Will have to try cutting material. You two are sooooo funny. thanks for the tip and for the laughs.
