Easter is coming and this DIY Personalized Easter Bag with Iron On Vinyl is the perfect Easter project for you! The project takes less than 30 minutes and Cricut’s Patterned Iron On is a great way to take your project to the next level and add some personality!
Hey friends! When I first laid eyes on Cricut’s NEW Patterned Iron On it was literal love at first sight!! It’s GORGEOUS and there are so many options!! So, I got to my first project with it — Customized Easter Bags that can double as Easter Baskets if wanted!

To recreate this fun design, the first thing you’ll want to do is click the link below to pull up the Design Space File.
Go ahead and amend the name to your kid(s) name and resize the design to fit on the Easter bag or bucket that you are wanting to customize.
Once you’re all done amending the design, click the ‘MAKE IT’ button in the top right hand corner.
Choose your machine from the drop down and choose Iron On for your material!
Make sure you place your Cricut Patterned Iron On face down (shiny side down). You want the plastic sheeting directly on your mat.
Load your Mat with Iron On into your machine and press the ‘C’ button on your machine once it’s flashing!
Once the design is done cutting, then go ahead and weed the design out, removing the iron on from the plastic sheeting.
I figured you’r want a closer look at this gorgeous Patterned Iron On Sampler. Isn’t it just pretty?
Go ahead and eye where you want your design to be.
Use your Easy Press to heat the surface that you’re going to be transferring your Iron On onto. Then place your cut out designs onto the bag. I used a ruler to help me find me center.
If you have an Easy Press, then make sure you get your hands on one of their new Easy Press Mats! You place them under the item you are customizing and it comes in so handy!
Then place your Easy Press over the design space and start your timer. I set my heat at 275 and applied pressure for 50 seconds.
Make sure it is completely cooled, before you try and remove the plastic sheeting completely off the design. You can lift the edges to confirm that the design is transferred, but don’t completely remove it until you allow it to cool completely!
I found the trick of holding the heated area up to the cold window. It cools down SO fast!
Next, apply your pom pom trim with a hot glue gun!
This little touch adds SO much to the Easter bag!
I hope this tutorial helps you personalize your kiddos Easter Bags and Baskets this year! Cricut’s NEW Patterned Iron On is AH-MAZING and I know I will be using it frequently! There are currently 11 sampler packs out between Cricut’s website, Michaels and JoAnn’s!
