Ever since I received my Cricut Explore Air 2 cutting machine, I have been obsessed with making t-shirts.
I made this funny DIY Disney Dole Whip shirt for a recent trip to Walt Disney World and it was a huge hit.
At Christmas, I made myself a DIY ugly sweater t-shirt using Cricut. I had so much fun making it, I’ll probably make another one this year.
Recently, Cricut came out with Patterned Iron On™ and I am swooning over it.
It makes me want to make even more shirts. First up, inspirational girls t-shirts for my granddaughters.
First, you’ll need some supplies.

Making Inspirational Girls T-Shirts
After gathering your supplies, you’ll need to open the quotes I made in Cricut Design Space using these links:
Select “Make It” in the lower right corner. Don’t forget to select the mirror button for both cuts.
Hit continue and follow the Design Space prompts. Make sure you set your Cricut machine setting to Iron-on.
Tip: make sure your Patterned Iron On is shiny side down on your cutting mat.
Once your machine is finished making the cuts, use the weeding tool to carefully remove the extra iron-on from the words.
Next, turn your EasyPress on and set the temperature to 340º.
Once the EasyPress is hot, lay your shirt on top of the EasyPress Mat and pre-heat the area you will be applying the cut design to for 5-10 seconds.
Then, position the cut design on your shirt and set the timer on your EasyPress to 50 seconds. Press lightly while applying heat.
Flip your shirt over and set your EasyPress timer for 15 seconds using firm pressure to further set your design.
Once the design is cold, carefully peel the plastic sheet from the Patterned Iron-On.
Position the word “fierce” on your shirt and use the protective sheet to cover the words you already adhered to your shirt.
Follow the same steps as before, remembering to allow the design to be cold before peeling the plastic off.
Don’t have an EasyPress? No problem! You can use your iron on the cotton setting for 50 seconds on the front of your shirt and 15 seconds on the back of your shirt.
The EasyPress Mat works great with your iron, too!
I just love how the shirts came out, and so do my granddaughters.
The Patterned Iron On sampler packs come with three 12″x17″ sheets, and all three sheets are different designs.
With so many to choose from, there is no end to all of the custom pillows, baby onesies, t-shirts, and tote bags you can make.
Plus, you can totally mix n- match from one sampler pack to another, so the design combinations are endless.
I’m already thinking about my next project. What will yours be?
