I’m not going to stop being excited over how well the Cricut Maker cuts fabric. I love everything from putting fabric on the magical pink mat to pulling it off and seeing that perfectly cut shape. It’s doubly fun when you’re using Cricut fabric! If you know me at all, you know that I suffer from a near constant case of wanderlust, so I decided to combine two of my current obsessions and made this Wanderlust Hoop Art.

Put your base fabric in the hoops and tighten. I put the fabric in now both for sizing and stitching reasons.
Cut out your fabric pieces. Make sure you use the pink mat and watch the rotary blade in action! You don’t need any backing on the fabric–between the machine knowing the right pressure for the material, the rotary blade, and the mat that is specifically designed for fabric, just sit back and watch your design come to life.
Place all the freshly cut fabric onto the hoops to get your placement right.
I stitched the pieces onto the hoop. I love hand stitching, but if you don’t, you can easily make this a no-sew project by cutting out all of the pieces in heat n bond. The Maker can do it!
Switch blades and cut out the iron-on foil. Remember to mirror image and place the shiny side down on the mat.
Iron on the foil. I placed each letter individually around the globe.
Put everything back in the hoops, trim the excess fabric and finish the back in your preferred way (I just glued a bit of the fabric to the inside of the hoop for these).
This Wanderlust Hoop Art was a lot of fun to make and has me dreaming of my next trip. I love that I can find the kind of images I want in Design Space, cut it out in fabric with the Maker and pink fabric mat, and make easy hoop art. And for those times when I can’t give in to my wanderlust in reality, I can daydream while my crafts tide me over.
