We created this pretty Scandinavian style flower pattern as part of the Design Space Star competition with the intention that it could be used on a lot of different products in our kitchen restyle. We picked up this gorgeous linen apron, teal linen towels and cocktail napkins at Crate & Barrel, the edges and pocket ideal for adding our own little stamp of creativity. The detail in the pattern lends itself to some intricate cutting so the Cricut Explore Air 2 is the perfect machine for this project.
We used three rows of this pattern to create our design on the apron so make sure to plan your arrangement to fit your project before sizing to cut. The towel uses only one row and the napkin just one flower. Once you have sized and cut your pattern onto your iron-on materials, use your weeder tool to remove all of the excess. Carefully lay out your design on the apron, towel or napkin in the position you would like. Set your iron to its hottest setting, cover with a thin cotton cloth and press your design for 6-8 minutes – we found that it took longer than anticipated, so be patient. A good indicator that it’s ready is when the plastic begins to wrinkle slightly at the edges. Once I have removed my plastic backing I like to place the cotton cloth over the design one more time and give it a final heat teal. Now you’re set to start baking in style!
Take care of your designed linen by washing on a cold, delicate setting and allow it to dry naturally. You can find this SVG file and instructions for cutting in Design Space, or download below. Enjoy~Lia

You might be aware already, but in Design Space the instructions say ” iron on hottest setting for 68 minutes” not 6-8 minutes.
Love the designs! You’re so talented!!
Oh no, too funny! I will let Cricut know:-)
I love your designs. I didn’t have any fabric iron-on material, so I made vinyl flowers for kitchen glass and ceramic accessories. This was my first use of vinyl with my Cricut (or anywhere) and it was so much fun! I didn’t have the “weeding” tool so I used scraps of the vinyl to pick out and remove the little extra pieces. Thanks for the inspiration!
I am so glad you enjoyed the designs and love to hear the different ways my readers use them. Thank you!!
Love the project. Can you recommend other brands of iron-on/heat transfer vinyl that work with Cricut? I want to use the Cricut brand, but there aren’t many colors.
I agree, we run into the same problem. I wish they had more colors to chose from!! I would give the iron-on from Silhouette a try.
Oh disappointed! But thanks for the info Lia. I do love those floral designs so thought I could use them as inspiration for embroidery anyway.
Hope you saw my paper tulips on Carte Fini’s facebook page last week. My Mum and sisters loved them on Mothers Day here in the UK. Another thankyou for an inspirational project. x
I will pop right over and check it out. Yay!! and Happy Belated Mother’s Day!
Things are too hard to find on the site. Like the Scandinavian ironons. How does one get to them? I didn’t see any “go here,” or “click this button.” And, above where it said”Leave a Comment,” when I clicked the box the page went somewhere else. I have used a number of your offerings, but I have had this problem before.
Sorry about the navigation problems, we are building a new site (yay!!) until then there isn’t much I can do. This is a template from WordPress. There are hyperlinks in the text in the last sentence, they are teal colored. (SVG file and Design Space) that will take you to where the pattern is hosted.
I LOVVVE these!!! Just so serene 🙂
Thanks! Love how they go with the rest of the kitchen too.
You are really tempting me with your Cricut projects Lia! I’ve never used a cutting machine but am thinking of purchasing a Cricut Mini (my craft space is mini mini). Will your gorgeous projects be suitable for the machine?
The mini will not work for these projects sadly. With the new owner and change in the business, the Explore and Explore Air are really the only two that are able to use the projects I create.
I got my Cricut Air a couple of days ago. Haven’t had a chance to use it for a customized project yet. I have so many ideas going through my mind that it makes it difficult to choose where to start! At least it will give me a little bit of time to gather up supplies. Love the Scandinavian theme you have been sharing with us. Thank you!
You are just going to love the machine! 😉 Share photos of your projects.
