Adding iron on to hats and shoes just got easy with the new Cricut EasyPress Mini. Check out this Narwhal ball hat that we created!
The Cricut EasyPress Mini was released today, and I was so lucky to play with one. Before, it was such a pain to apply iron on to items like hats or shoes, but this tiny little press makes it so easy! I even layered a rainbow of colours to make it a little more challenging, but the Cricut EasyPress Mini was up to the task!

How to Add Iron On to a Hat
I used a couple of styles of Iron On for this project, but most colours were the Everyday Iron On with the StrongBond (check out their satisfaction guarantee here). The gold glitter Iron On was perfect for the narwhal’s horn.
This project is easy to complete on either a Maker or Explore machine, and the design is available in the Cricut Image Library. It’s designed by one of my new favourite artists, Rad and Happy, but I manipulated the image a bit using contour and slice. I added a few extra stars and deleted some of the cuts like the inside of the stars. You can use my project or search for image #MCC28C00 in Cricut Design Space to use the original.
The Cricut EasyPress Mini is so small and cute. I just love it! It is so simple to work with as well. I set the press to medium, and it was heated up in no time.
While waiting for the EasyPress Mini to heat up, I layered my project to make sure everything was placed in the correct spot. I also decided to remove the black outline, as it didn’t show up very well on the navy hat.
I placed the white portion first, and then layered the stars one at a time. Make sure to cover the entire area with a scrap of transfer sheet or a protective sheet. I layered the stars one at a time, and placed the gold horn on last. After, I covered it with the transfer sheet and gave one final press with all layers.
Cricut EasyPress Mini For The Win!
Thanks to the EasyPress Mini, this project came together so fast. Changing the mats for each Iron On material took the longest! And my daughter absolutely loves her cute, new narwhal hat. I am so excited to use my EP Mini on more projects now – maybe even to personalize a stuffy or a toy? What other materials can you see the Cricut EasyPress Mini being helpful with?
