POW! BAM! WOW! This year, our little princess, Keira, requested a Batgirl theme for her 6th birthday. We partnered with Cricut to create a custom designed Batgirl dress. We are excited to share Keira's transformation into Batgirl with you.
We initially tried to find a purple Batgirl dress for Keira. When we couldn't find one, we decided to make Keira a custom dress using our Cricut tools. We purchased a purple dress and used Cricut Explore Air 2 to create the Batgirl logo. We used the Cricut Easy Press to imprint the logo onto the dress. Cricut has many types of vinyl. For iron-on projects, make sure to use the Iron-On Vinyl (which differs from the regular vinyl you would use on a wine glass or cardstock).
We designed our Batgirl logo on Cricut Design Space and used our Cricut Explore Air 2 to cut it out. To make the Batgirl logo, you will need a mat, yellow Iron-On Vinyl, Cricut tools and Cricut Easy Press. There is a custom smart dial on the Cricut Explore Air 2 that allows you to select the material to get a precision cut. We cut our logo using the Iron-On setting.
We cut the Iron-On vinyl into a rectangle and used the Basic Tool Set to weed the the area outside the logo. What should remain is the logo on the clear backing (don't do it the other way around as it will be harder to Iron-On to the dress).
Next we placed the logo on the dress, and waited for our Cricut Easy Press to reach 315 degrees.
We used the Cricut Easy Press for about 30 seconds on each side.
Keira loved her custom Batgirl dress, and we can't wait to share the rest of the details of Keira's Gotham City with you.
