Cricut Infusible Ink Kid's T-Shirt
I've started a yearly tradition of making my daughter a shirt for her birthday. I've enjoyed trying out Cricut's Infusible Ink so I thought why not try that for this year's shirt? My daughter loves rainbows so I went with a gradient transfer sheet and paired it with a rainbow skirt.
• Infusible Ink Transfer Sheet (I used this one)
• Cricut Infusible Ink T-Shirt
• Cricut Die Cutting Machine
• EasyPress 2
• Cricut EasyPress Mat (or towel)
• Cricut Standard or Light Grip mat
• White Cardstock
• Butcher Paper (comes with Infusible Ink transfer sheets)
• Lint Roller
1. Choose Your Design
There are a number of designs already available to you in Design Space or you can make your own. Make sure to size accordingly to the size shirt you're using.
2. Cut Your Design
Place your transfer sheet liner side down on your mat. Make sure to mirror your design in Design Space before cutting.
3. Weed and Apply
Use tweezers or your fingers to weed your design. Trim around your design so it fits under your EasyPress.
Put a piece of white cardstock in your shirt to protect your project and place on top of your EasyPress mat. Use a fresh piece of lint roller on the entire surface of your shirt. This well help prevent imperfections during your transfer.
Cover your shirt with butcher paper and preheat your shirt at 385º for 15 seconds.
Remove the butcher paper and let cool.
Place your design face down on the shirt with the liner being on top.
Place butcher paper over your design. Make sure it is larger than the heat plate on your EasyPress.
Press your design at 385º for 40 seconds. Make sure everything stays still while pressing.
Slowly lift your EasyPress when done and let your project cool completely before removing butcher paper and design. Then you are done!
