Group Hunting Sweatshirts with Cricut Smart Iron-On Vinyl
It’s hunting season and the boys wanted some matching sweatshirts with the camp name on the back. We obviously had to do bright orange! With the Cricut Smart Vinyl it was so nice being able to do all 8 cuts in a row without having to change the mat.
I first created my design in Design Space.
I measured the space I had for the image on the sweatshirt.
I sized my design accordingly and duplicated each design so I had 4 of each.
I then clicked Make it. It will then ask you how you are cutting it. I selected without a mat.
It then will show you how it will look cut on the roll. This is where you want to remember to click on Mirror.
I am all about saving as much vinyl as possible. So I figured out that if I flip one image it fit exactly next to the other image. I saved a ton of Vinyl! It will tell you how much vinyl you will need to have to be able to cut out all the designs.
Then I selected the material. Because I chose without a mat it will only give me the options of the Smart Materials.
Then I loaded my Smart Iron On. Be sure to put the shiny side down.
The GO button will start to flash. I clicked that and it began to cut. It took awhile to cut but it was really nice not having to do each cut on different mats. It would have taken 8 different mats had I cut these on my old machine.
After it was done cutting, I weeded each design. I cut each design separately so that it was easier to weed.
Using the Cricut Heat Guide I selected the right temp and time for my vinyl. I used my Easy Press 2.
I let the vinyl cool slightly and peeled off the transfer sheet. I did this for both the front and the back of each sweatshirt.
My Maker 3 and the Smart Iron-on made quick work of these 4 matching front and back sweatshirts. The boys will be so happy to go hunting this year!
