Customizing Baseball Gifts Using The Cricut Maker with Video!

Hello! I am so excited to finally have a Cricut Maker!! I was lucky enough to find it on TSC, which is the Canadian Shopping Channel, and I used a 20% off coupon, making it super affordable with their interest-free payment plan! I previously had an Explore, which I loved, but I felt this was the right time to upgrade and take advantage of the new features the Maker has, including the ability to cut fabric easily with the rotary blade! With a birthday present needed for a little boy having a baseball themed party I thought this was the perfect time to break it open and get going. My daughter, Erica, who is 7 really enjoyed helping make this present for her little friend, and I enjoyed the crafting time with her!

Here's a look at the VIDEO where I'll show you step by step how easy it is to create two quick, easy, personalized gifts.

I was surprised and so pleased at how easily the Cricut Maker Rotary Blade cut through fabric! This was a white fleece material and I was a bit worried about how much residue it might leave on the fabric mat, but it came off completely clean. The Everyday Iron-On adhered perfectly to the fleece and we stitched up the pillow in no time.

Erica's friend was so excited to get his new shirt, and she thought it was an awesome gift to give! She was so proud of the fact that she helped to make it.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I'd love to know if you have an electronic cutter, and if so, which one? Have an awesome crafty week friends!


  1. What fun gifts!! I love the baseball pillow!! And what a deal you got on the Maker, too!! I haven't used my Explore in so long, I think I've forgotten how :( I used to be hooked on my Cricut, especially when they first came out. I have over 100 of the cartridges, but I loaded them to my Gypsy and sold them. I don't remember how to use my Gypsy anymore either!! I look forward to seeing more of what the Maker can do!! Have a great weekend!! Big hugs :)

  2. WOW! What a fantastic hand made gift idea! LOVE the shirt and that cool pillow! I use to be a Cricut addict - Then I discovered the Cameo back in 2012 and fell in LOVE with it! Gave up anything Cricut related and stuck with my Cameo.... I also own a Brother Scan N Cut... But I only use it for cutting out my stamped images... I hate fussy cutting and that machine saves me from having to do it! :)
