    Would I have to have a Crichton to be able to do this?

      There is a PDF template available if you would like to cut by hand!

    Sorry to be a pest, but I completely misunderstood the directions and thought we glued two large pieces of grey felt together for the base. Typical for me to jump in and not carefully read the directions. But, do we cut out the mansion body pieces separately and glue together or do we tape the paper pieces together and then cut out the larger pieces from the felt? I also have a large roof piece with a side that says “tape” but I can’t find where it goes. I thought it was the right side of the mansion roof but it seems to be sloping the wrong way.

      Print and cut out the PDF pattern first, taping the oversized pieces together where indicated (there are outlines showing the design to help match it all up). Then cut out the felt pieces with a Cricut Maker or with scissors. Some parts of the house are made up of multiple pieces of felt glued together because they are larger than 12โ€x18โ€, but these seams will be hidden.

    I think I found out a workaround–ungrouped and removed the large box outline. But I think I messed up and cut out the light grey from the dark and had to recut with correct felt. I only have two large pieces of dark grey left. How many pieces are put together for the house? I may need to order more if it’s more than two.

      Hi Raquel! Yes, there’s a note in the SVG file to resize the entire design so it fits on the Design Space canvas properly, then delete the disclaimer layer before cutting. The instruction download (in step 2) indicates how many sheets of felt and vinyl you will need for this entire project.

    I was trying to cut out the vinyl and the artwork is sized to 30×35 but I get an error message that says this project is incompatible with my maker. Help!

    I’m trying to make this adorable Halloween count down for my grandchildren. I probably should stick to flowers but I couldn’t resist. I’ve never cut vinyl before and Cricut says I have to resize the porch since it’s too long for the Maker and I only have 12×12 mats. Any suggestions? Thanks.

      Never mind. Thank goodness for YouTube. I discovered the “Slice” feature. Who knew.

      Hi! You shouldn’t have to resize anythingโ€“ the porch, wood trim and beams is actually cut into two already in the SVG. There’s a step in the tutorial showing where we ironed on the 2 pieces end to end so it looks seamless. If you still have trouble, please send us a screenshot to hello@liagriffith.com!
