The Cricut Hat Press is here and it’s amazing!! In the post today I will show you how to use the Cricut Hat Press. Using the new Cricut Heat App, the Cricut Heat is so easy to use with the step by step prompts from the bluetooth Cricut Heat App. I love that the Cricut Hat Press comes with the press form. This helps create that firm pressing surface for those curved surfaces of the hat. Allowing you to get an ideal press every time.
There is a simple set up when you first open your Cricut Hat Press. Download the Cricut Heat App on your phone from the App store. Click add a device and choose Hat Press. Follow the steps to connect your Cricut Hat Press. From the app you can heat the Hat Press up to the needed temperature! Simply select start a new project. select the material type and iron on product type. The app will tell you the settings and you can click send settings to Hat Press! Wow! I am really impressed with that feature. It makes it so quick and easy and once again takes all the thinking out of using these amazing Cricut products.
