Etching glass with Cricut and Expressions vinyl

Hubby and I have been doing some glass etching.  This is a set of mugs with PROST! (German for cheers!) we made for our son and (German) dau-in-law.  I found a web site that gives instructions, so thought I'd share it:

Iron on Vinyl with my Cricut

I have been experimenting with vinyl.  Here is a project I made with the iron on vinyl.

Something I made

I was wondering what I could do with all those T shirts I never wear anymore.  TaDa!  I cut them up and made a rag rug! I found the instructions on cutting the body of the shirt in one long strip on Craft Passion
 Then I pulledg on the strip to 'curl' it.  After winding in a yarn ball, I selected a very large crochet hook.  Each color is a different T shirt.
