I continue to love using my Cricut Maker for unique personalized gifts.
I recently made my sister a t-shirt for her 40th birthday and made the cutest coasters for my friend.
Since Mother’s Day is just around the corner, I thought a Mother’s Day tote would be a great project to make.

I created an original design in Cricut Design Space for this project. I used fonts and a wave design included in the program. Since I live on Vancouver Island, I thought that “island mama” would be a cute bag to make.
Once I decided on a design, I set up my Cricut Maker to cut on my Infusible Ink transfer sheets. I really like using Infusible Ink because the end result looks so professional. The ink melts into the fabric and is very bright. (Note, it’s best to use Cricut materials when using Infusible Ink, I learnt this the hard way – 100% cotton t-shirts DO NOT work with Infusible Ink).
Once your design is cut and weeded, use your Cricut EasyPress 2 at 385 degrees for 40 seconds. Make sure you check the stacking order for this project. You don’t want the Infusible Ink to transfer through the tote.
I absolutely love how my tote turned out. I think this is a unique gift that my mom will love.
I’m very impressed with the quality of the Cricut Tote Blank. It’s sturdy and quite large. It will be a great tote to bring along when shopping.
I’d love to know, have you ever made personalized gifts for Mother’s Day?
