I was deciding on some new patterns I wanted to try to do for gifts and such the other day and it somehow popped into my head to try to do a mug with the logo and phone number of my mother-in-law’s Cat Hotel business. I thought it would be a fun project for me to practice removing the background on again and it would be great advertising for her!
I started by copying the logo/picture from her website and uploading it into Design Space. Design Space is great because when you upload a picture it has tools to remove the background so you are left with just what you want to actually cut. I used these tools to do just that with the logo.
Once the image was ready I got it to the size I wanted for the mug and then added text so I could include her phone number at the bottom of the design.
This is the design I did…. with the phone number blurred out for privacy.
I saved the pattern and then cut it using my Cricut before applying it to the mug, ready to give to my mother-in-law!
