Cricut Infusible Ink Shirt with Pens
The possibilities with Cricut Infusible Ink are endless! I personally find the pens easier to work with than the transfer sheets, but do enjoy both. For this project I wanted to make a cute "let it bee" design.
• Infusible Ink Pens
• Cricut Infusible Ink T-Shirt
• Cricut Die Cutting Machine
• EasyPress 2
• Cricut EasyPress Mat (or towel)
• Cricut Standard or Light Grip mat
• Heat Resistant Tape
• 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. Draw Your Design
Either hand draw or have your machine draw your design on copy paper. Make sure to mirror your design in Design Space and place paper on your light grip mat.
3. Fill in Your Design
You will most likely need to fill in some open spaces with the Infusible Ink pens if you had your machine draw your image.
4. Apply Your Design
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.
Place piece of butcher paper down on your shirt and preheat your shirt at 385º for 15 seconds.
Remove butcher paper and let cool.
Place your design face down on the shirt and tape it down with heat resistant tape.
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!
