Whether you're traversing scenic routes, visiting historic landmarks, or simply enjoying the freedom of the open road, capturing the spirit of your journey is essential. And what better way to do it than by creating personalized, one-of-a-kind T-shirts that reflect your family's unique road trip experience?



White Cricut Iron-On

Cricut Auto Press (or any heat press)

White T-shirt

Tie Dye kit 

Weeding tools

My Co-Worker and amazingly talented friend Beth made this image for my trip to Niagara Falls 


I went in and adjusted the size I wanted it to be on the shirts 

Then I got to Tie Dying! 


Don't do what I did, I would recommend putting a plastic tablecloth down to protect your table  

It is a messy project but so much fun 

This is how two of them turned out. We tie dyed 8 in total one for every person coming on the road trip. 

Measure your shirt to make sure the image in Design Space is the size you want it to be

Now its time to "Make it"!

Make sure you mirror the image so that it reads correctly on your shirt

Cut your iron-on to the length of your Design and smooth it out 

Once it is cut you are able to weed it 


Place it on your shirt once it is all weeded 

Since there were so many shirts to do I used an Auto Press and let me tell you, that is the way to go if you do a lot of shirts at one time. It is so quick and easy to set up and use! I put the heat at 330 degrees F for 25 seconds 

Just pull the handle down and it will beep once it is time to lift the handle back up

I did all of the shirts twice just to be sure that the iron-on would not budge

Be sure to wait until the shirt has cooled before removing the plastic 

Here is what one of them looked like all finished! 

This was such a an awesome way to make this trip even more special
