Cricut Easy Press Mini

The Cricut Easy Press Mini is the newest little addition to Cricut's world! It's perfect for all your small projects, such as hats, shoes, stuffed animals, etc. It's also the perfect little companion for sewing!

This year my goal has been to make at least 1 quilt per person in our family (well, immediate) but preferably 2, and so far I'm up to 6 finished quilt tops and 2 completed quilts! I've been dying to get a small iron to be right next to me at my sewing machine so I could sew and then iron each individual seam without having to get up. You have no idea what a life saver this little iron is!


Some other items I used in this post are:
Cricut Scissors Combo Pack
and although I didn't use Cricut Fabric, they do offer some adorable fabric bundles on their site!


This little iron really is mini! It's 3.4" length by 2.1" width.
It has 3 heat settings, low, medium, and high. You can find Cricut's Heat Guide here.
For ironing fabric, I turned it to the highest heat.


Although the mini doesn't have a timer, it does have features that the other Easy Press machines have. It comes in it's own little safety base and has the Auto-off feature, as well as offers the same technologies as the Easy Press 2, such as an even heat plate.
Ironing my fabric was such an ease and it easily took out the wrinkles and pressed seams easily!


I've been loving making quilts and just got into quilt alongs. The quilt I'm featuring in this post is:

You can click on that link for the actual paper pattern, or you can click here:
to get the PDF pattern for the sewalong. The whole pattern isn't available in the sewalong yet. This Quilt along just started September 6 and we are on post 4 of it. Every two weeks the new squares are dropped, so you have plenty of time to join in too!


As of this moment I am all caught up with my squares! The Easy Press Mini was such a life saver while making it! It's always so annoying and body-ache enducing to get up to iron every.single.seam.
This way, I had the little mini iron next to me so I didn't have to jump up each time! It was perfect!


I know the Mni will also come in handy for sewing dresses and getting those hard to reach iron spots, like sleeves and cuffs!


Do you have the Easy Press Mini yet? What project would you use it for?
