DIY Workout Leggings with Cricut Explore Air 2

If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you might assume that if I were to get asked which Cricut machine I’d recommend for others to purchase, I’d always say the Maker. And while my love for the Maker knows no end ;), I always have some followup questions before I can answer, and depending on a person’s crafting interests and intentions, I often recommend the Explore Air 2 rather than the Maker. So in the spirit of that, today I’m going to share 5 things I love about the Cricut Explore Air 2, along with a fun DIY workout leggings tutorial (sponsored by Cricut) that you can make with the Explore Air 2 and SportFlex Iron-On!

DIY Rice Bag Tutorial

If you follow me over on Instagram, you may have seen my excitement over Cricut’s newest product (feels like a bit of deja vu after my recent Infusible Ink post), the EasyPress Mini! I think we can all agree that tinier almost always = cuter, and the EasyPress Mini definitely fits into that category ;). But cuteness aside, Cricut definitely filled a need with the release of the EasyPress Mini, and today I’m partnering with Cricut to share all the details and a fun project for you to make yourself, a paper pieced quilted DIY rice bag and sleep mask!
