DIY Freddy Krueger Bag
Do you like scary movies? I do, well I used to. I don’t like the horror movies of today. But my favorite scary movie is still Nightmare on Elm Street (just the first one, the subsequent movies were pure garbage, IMO). I watched it when I was way too young and I’m sure it contributed to my love for Halloween (although I do think Scooby Doo is to blame, lol)! Of course, I was smitten with young Johnny Depp. Where did the time go? Fast forward today and my sons have inherited my love for spooky flicks. As you can see from our Scary Movie Halloween Party!
So today I’m sharing how you can make your own Freddy Krueger bag easily with Cricut!
What you will need:
- Cricut Machine
- Heat Press (I used my Autopress)
- Red Drawstring Bag
- Green Iron Vinyl
- Black Iron Vinyl
- White Iron Vinyl
- This Freddy Inspired Font from Dafont
- This Freddy Image
- I created a project in Cricut Design Space to get you started
I created a quick video to show you the overall steps…
The wheel of fate picked horror movies for today’s project theme. The original Nightmare on Elm Street is my favorite horror movie! What’s yours? #cricutmade #freddykrueger #halloween #howto #cricut #tutorial #nightmareonelmstreet #crafttok

Upload the Freddy Image and load the font on your system. Measure the width of your bag and thickness that you want for the stripes. Adjust my project in Cricut Design Space as needed for your bag.
Cut the images on HTV.
Place the stripes on your bag, evenly spaced. Tape down with Heat Resistant Tape to secure. Press per instructions for your HTV and the material of the bag.
Next, press the Freddy image and offset for the words.
Press the white letters on top of the offset.
And that’s it! Super easy! What do you think?
