I am a converse girl, have been since school and just because I am the wrong side of forty doesn’t mean that I am going to stop wearing them!
I have been doing projects with my Cricut Explore and have been thinking about what I could do with leather when I had a POW moment and decided to make some leather lace-on shoe mustaches for me and the minimads.
Cutting leather on the Cricut Explore
I uploaded an image of a moustache and inserted two circles, which I resized to 0.2 inches and then placed them when I wanted the holes for the laces to be and welded them to that place, but clicking on all the images.
The Cricut Explore is proving to be a ninja cutting machine and has managed with everything I have thrown at it so far and this was no exception. I set selected the cutting material in the menu and changed the dial to custom.
I used a deep cutting blade and the leather cut really easily as you can see from the video.

I am really pleased as to how these turned out and would be as simple to make with just a stencil and scissors.
I used the Cricut Explore to cut the leather and the holes and then added an eyelet to them with the crop a dile to finish them off.
I am really pleased with them and even more so is Mini.
