Well it won’t be long before Halloween 2019 is breathing down our necks. I have to admit — and don’t be mad at me, but I am not really a huge fan of Halloween.

Let’s get started with the totes! I wanted to create some fun totes for my kids and I was happy to use the totes from Cricut.
Let me start by saying these totes are impeccable quality. They are 100% polyester so that then can be used in conjunction with the Infusible Inks but if you wanted to you could also use Iron On as well.
For my totes, I chose to work with the Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets.
These are the Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets I used:
Infusible Ink™ Transfer Sheet Patterns, Leopard – I used the orange from this pack.
Infusible Ink™ Transfer Sheet Patterns, Wildflower – I used the yellow from this pack
Infusible Ink™ Transfer Sheet Ultraviolet
Infusible Ink™ Transfer Sheet Black
I found some images in Design Space that I wanted to use and designed the text around the images.
I cut the images with my Cricut Maker.
Once the image is cut, you can weed away the parts that you do not need.
The Transfer Sheets are like cardstock, so they are firmer so when weeding just make sure that you remove the areas you don’t need with care.
When working with multiple colours, you weed each colour, remove them from the transfer sheet and stack them in order on one transfer sheet. You can only press the Infusible ink once, so you need to layer all at one time.
VERY IMPORTANT — DO NOT FORGET TO MIRROR YOUR IMAGES BEFORE CUTTING!
Place a piece of butcher paper over your design. I love the Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets because they come with pieces of butcher paper.
You will also notice that I have slide my Easy Press Protective Mat in my tote. This will protect my work surface but as well allow for a flawless press.
Press your design using medium pressure at 400 degrees.
When you lift your EasyPress and remove the butcher paper, you will see a flawless, infused design.
My kids love their new totes and can’t wait to go trick or treating. These bags a perfect to pack the candy in!
I wanted to also make my kids some fun shirts but this time, I decided to use the Infusible Ink makers and pens.
I found some fun monster letters in Cricut Design Space and I thought it would be fun to have my son colour in the letters with the Infusible Ink Markers.
My son, Dougie, had such a blast colouring and personalizing his own shirt.
Infusible Ink markers work when you have your Cricut Maker draw your design with the markers or pens in Laser Paper.
Once my Cricut Maker had drawn out the outline letters in black, I gave the paper to my son to colour with the other Infusible Ink Markers.
Once he was done colouring, I pressed the design with my EasyPress onto a Cricut shirt. Again, make sure you mirror these designs.
I also made a shirt for my daughter using more of the Transfer Sheets.
Now, with the help of Cricut Infusible Inks, I think we are Halloween ready. These shirts are a great idea for kid’s school Halloween festivities.
A lot of schools do not allow costumes to be worn to school so these shirts are a perfect for staying in the Halloween spirit.
