How to Make a T-Shirt with a Cricut
We often hear that when people first get their Cricut, one of the first things they want to do is make t-shirts! I honestly think this is one of my favorite parts about owning a Cricut. It's so fun and thankfully, it's pretty easy! In this tutorial today, I'm going to show you how to make your very own custom t-shirt. All you need is a 100% cotton t-shirt, a Cricut and an EasyPress or household iron.
- Everyday Iron-On, Black
- Standard Grip Mat (I used a Light Grip in the video but I recommend using Standard Grip for iron-on/heat transfer vinyl)
- 100% Cotton T-Shirt (I used a Bella Canvas Brand)
- Cricut Maker (you can also use a Cricut Explore or Cricut Joy)
- Cricut EasyPress
- EasyPress Mat
Learn more in the video below on how to get started making t-shirts with a Cricut. I promise you can do it! First, I'll walk you through how to make the design in Design Space and then I'll show you how to apply the iron-on/heat transfer vinyl to the t-shirt.
Note: I did use an EasyPress for this project, but you can use a household iron if you're just getting started. Just follow the same steps: pre-heat, press, and then heat from the back. You may have to play around a little bit with how long to press for — but the goal is full adhesion of the iron-on to the t-shirt. Once you can see it stuck well (the fibers of the shirt may show through a little on the iron-on) and the transparent carrier sheet easily pulls off, then you have a successful transfer.
I hope that helps you get started in your iron-on/heat transfer vinyl projects! If you haven't yet, come join our Cricut Community on Facebook and share all of your projects with us. Happy making!
