How to make

You will also need two denim jackets.

Step 1

Open the Cricut Design Space app and open a blank canvas, make the metric units is selected under Canvas Settings.

Step 2

Measure the back piece of the denim jacket (between where the seams are) and just above the pocket on the front. Once you have these measurements create yourself a template in Design Space using the shapes tool. I created one size for Mrs and one for Mr. This is just an optional guide to help with your design.

Step 31

Place the first piece onto the denim jacket and press with your EasyPress2. The denim jackets I used were 100% cotton. For the Everyday Iron-On set your EasyPress2 temperature to 155oC and preheat the jacket for 5 seconds before applying the vinyl. Set the timer to 15 seconds and press lightly. Carefully flip and press again for another 15 seconds. Peel off the plastic when Warm. Keep the plastic pieces!

Step 32

To apply the Glitter Iron-On over the top, place into place when still warm. Set your temperature to 165oC. Place the original piece of plastic from the White over the top of the design and press for 15 seconds, flip carefully and press for another 15 seconds. Peel away the plastic when warm.

Step 33

Your wedding jackets are now complete and ready to wear!
