Provo Craft New Cricut Explore

We are so excited to have the new
Provo Craft Cricut Explore today. The machine that combines an electronic cutting machine with Cricut Design Space, you can even use your existing Cricut Cartridges. Saying the possibilities are endless is actually true with this awesome machine.

I was able to meet Desiree Moss from Provo Craft about a month ago at a local Scrapbook Expo. Not only is she an awesome girl, but she is a fashion designer and made three magnificent dressing using the new Cricut Explore with her co-worker Anna Rose Johnson.  Check it out.

Butterfly Dress

Designed and built by Desiree Moss

Bodice:

I used the bodice pattern without the bow from vogue pattern v1102 with a thin lining material.

Skirt:

I took the measurement of the waist and gathered yards and yards of tulle into a circle (estimate: 30 yards). I used 5 different types of tulle to get the perfect amount of poof and color.

Embellishment:

First I used the Cricut Explore to cut 180 butterflies. This was about 20 sheets of paper.

After the skirt was sewn to the bodice I used Mod Podge to glue gold metallic paper butterflies (cut out with Cricut Explore) flat onto the bodice in a checkerboard pattern. In the blank spaces of the bodice, I hot glued a butterfly with wings bent at different angles to give it a 3D effect. After the bodice was filled butterflies, I moved down to the skirt. On the skirt I positioned and glued the 3D butterflies heavy around the waist and hips, fading out down to the hem on one side of the dress. On the bare side of the skirt I glued a few butterflies under three layers of tulle.

To add a finishing touch, I made a beautiful beaded collar necklace. I cut the necklace base out with Cricut Explore out of wool felt. Then glued two ribbons to the side to tie around the neck and make a nice bow. To embellish I used all types and sizes of beads to make it look intricate and glitzy. It was the perfect finishing touch to the dress.

 

 

Leather Triangle Dress

Designed and built by Desiree Moss and Anna Rose Johnson

Annarose cut hundreds of leather triangles using the Cricut Explore. Then we glued them onto a  pre sewn dress. Then I sewed all of the triangles together so it looked like one solid fabric. If you look up close you can see they are all tiny pieces triangles sewn together.

Maroon Flapper Felt Dress

Designed and built by Anna Rose Johnson

Wool felt circles cut out using Cricut Explore. Layered and adhered to form the dress. The fringe is paper circles sewn together to make garland. Finished with some gold trim.
