Singer Futura with Cricut, Round 2

I've been successful with the above union again--like a match made in heaven. Just a quick rundown on how this is accomplished, I die cut the desired images using my Cricut with the respective layers. Then I scan it into my computer and retrieve it in the software that came with the Futura--Autopunch. Then I embroider it onto the desired material. For the sweatshirt, I embroidered it onto white canvas, trimmed it out with microtip scissors, applied Fray Check to stop any fraying around the edges, applied heat-n-bond, and then ironed it onto Gwen's pocket of her sweatshirt. She loves it--as do I! Thanks for stopping by to take a peek. If anyone has any embroidery tips, please share--I'm a newbie.
