How I Use My Cricut to Make T-shirts
Hello and happy St. Patrick's Day! I love any day that gives me an excuse to throw on a festive outfit, and St. Patty's is no exception! Every year I go all out with green clothing and accessories. This year, I decided to use my Cricut machine to make my own t-shirt for the holiday!
The first thing I did was go on Google images to find a four-leaf clover I was happy with. The color didn't matter, I just wanted one with a good shape. When I found one I was happy with, I saved it to my computer and opened it in a Word Doc. I then put the words "don't pinch me" on the clover in white so it stood out. I put it into my Cricut program and chose which parts I wanted my machine to cut. I wanted the four leaf clover shape cut out as well as all of the words inside the clover.
Next, I got some silver Iron-On vinyl ready and prepared it on my Cricut mat. I really like the Cricut brand of vinyl because it is really good quality. It is pretty expensive, though, so don't worry, there are plenty of cheaper vinyl options for DIY projects. Then, I just let my Cricut do it's job!
