Elmo Shirt Tutorial
Elmo Card – Made with the Sesame Street Cricut Cartridge
We of course had to introduce Ethan to drumming since Andrew is a drummer, it was a total hit with all the little ones at the party. I jazzed it up by adding his name in Cricut letters.
- 5”x3” White Fabric
- 3”x"3” Orange Fabric
- 7”x4” Black Fabric
- Heat n Bond Lite Iron-On Adhesive (If making no sew then use the Ultra Hold).
- Red Tee Shirt (Shirt in photo is a 5T).
- Applique Pattern: Download the SCUT File Here or download the PDF Pattern Here.
1. Starch and iron your fabric, to get it stiffer and easier to work with.
2. Prep your fabric for pattern cutting, cut rough sizes for each shape, then iron on the Heat n Bond.
3. If using your Cricut, remove backing paper and stick to your matt, then blue tape the edges for extra hold. (Get your matt extra sticky again by using Zig Two Way Glue, cutting fabric well is all about grip and a fresh blade). Cut using your cricut on medium speed with a deep cut depth. (Don’t be surprised if it messes up the smile lines).
4. If not using a cricut trace the pattern pieces onto the baking paper and cut out carefully. (Note on the mouth shape skip the smile lines they are do skinny to work out well).
5.Position the face as you want him, and iron on through a piece of muslin (so the pieces don’t move around on you). At this point if you used Ultra Hold you’re done.
6. Carefully stitch along the edges, the key is slow and lots of stopping and adjusting.
7. If you have a monogram font on your machine I like to add my initials onto the tag =)
I also added the big E to the back in the Sesame Street font to the back using the same method.
