This Thanksgiving tee says it plain and simple. Let’s get on with dessert.
I don’t know about your family, but in my family, Thanksgiving is all about the pie.
With minimal supplies, you can make your own Thanksgiving tee. Plus, I’ve done all the hard work, so all you have to do is open my project and get started.
You can also easily re-size the design to fit any size t-shirt. That way, all the pie lovers in your troupe can have their very own Thanksgiving tee.

Thanksgiving Tee Supplies
- Cricut Maker or Explore Air
- Cricut Access
- My design in Cricut Design Space
- Grey t-shirt – toddler-sized, washed (without fabric softener) and dried
- Orange thread
- Sewing machine or needle
- Cricut Everyday Iron-on in Black
- Riley Blake fusible fabric sampler in pastel
- 12×12 Cricut FabricGrip Mat
- Bonded-Fabric Blade + Housing – I didn’t have this blade, so I used the regular blade and selected medium-weight fabric (see instructions)
- Sewing kit – Not absolutely necessary, but super nice to have!
- 6×7 Cricut EasyPress 2 – Quickly and easily adheres vinyl to fabric. So much faster and easier than an iron!
- 8×10 Cricut EasyPress Mat – Basically turns any surface into an ironing board!
Thanksgiving Tee Directions
- First, access my project in Cricut Design Space HERE
- Next, decide wether or not you need to resize the design. It’s currently sized to fit an 18-month to 2T toddler shirt. Click “customize” to resize (First Photo) or “make it” if you don’t need to (Next Photo).
- Make sure you turn the mirroring on for the vinyl. You won’t need to do this for the fabric.
- If you have the bonded-fabric blade, select bonded fabric. Otherwise, select medium fabric and use the rotary blade.
- Follow the Cricut instructions for cutting your vinyl and fabric.
Tip: Cut Iron-on vinyl with the shiny side down
- Once you have cut your vinyl and fabric, carefully peel away the negative spaces
- Set the EasyPress 2 to 315º
- Preheat the front of the shirt for 5 seconds
- Position the vinyl and fusible fabric where you want it on the shirt
- Apply gentle pressure for 30 seconds
- Flip your Thanksgiving tee over and press for 15 seconds
- Carefully peel the protective sheet off of the vinyl while still warm but not too hot to touch
- Using your sewing machine and orange thread, stitch down the edges of the fusible fabric to secure permanently
Thanksgiving Tee Care Instructions
- Wait 24 hours before washing
- Machine wash inside out in cold water
- Tumble dry low
- Do not bleach
I made this Thanksgiving tee for my 1-year-old grandson and it looks adorable on him!
I just know he’s going to love his first bite of pie! That is, if I can sneak it too him. Just don’t tell his mom.
