I created this design:


Using this reference picture:



I wanted the design to be Cricut iron-on compatible and Iactually really like the simpler design! But making it was trickier than it looks. 


I started out by placing the reference picture into procreate and drawing the words and the BC letters outline. I exported my drawing as a transparent png image and converted it to an svg image in convertio. I took this svg and imported it to cricut design space.

After I found two images that I liked to match the fires for the B and the floods for the C, I had to figure how to do something called overlay or knockout to place the design only inside the letter. 


Cricut image ID’s:

Fire: #M2733F722

Wave: #MAA29B53


To do this step, I used Cricut design space on my laptop. I selected both the flame and the B and clicked slice. I selected contour and clicked to remove the un-needed objects. I selected the pieces of the B outline and welded them together. I repeated the same steps for the flame and the C (as well as the inside B pieces)

Guide To The Three Main Machine Embroidery Stabilizers

 This article is brought to you by  Lizzsews . Here is everything that you need to know about the three main machine embroidery stabilizers.
